Outlook Reports

Welcome to Outlook, the World Future Society’s annual roundup of thought-provoking forecasts, trends, and ideas. These brief items are drawn from articles and news stories originally appearing in THE FUTURIST.

The forecasts should not be interpreted as “predictions” of what the future will be like, but rather as glimpses of what may happen or proposals for what should happen. They are intended to provoke thought and inspire action. However, the opinions and ideas presented here are those of the authors or sources cited and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the World Future Society.

For more information about any of these forecasts, please refer to the original articles cited. — THE EDITORS
