CI'NUM 2007 - THE DIGITAL CIVILIZATIONS FORUM
COLLABORATIVE SCENARIO THINKING SPACE - HORIZON: 2030



ABOUT CI'NUM

Ci'Num is a global, multicultural, 3-year foresight process which intends to shed a new light on the future of our digital civilizations, taking into account geopolitical, cultural and economic differences. Our focus is :

  • on the specific contribution of, and challenges related to, the emergence of ubiquitous and "intimate" technologies stemming from the convergence between nanotech, biotech, IT and cognitive science;
  • on the social appropriation and production of technology;
  • and on the ways, tools and methods through which we become empowered to shape our personal and collective futures - i.e., not on figuring out the most likely futures, but in recognizing uncertainties and looking for ways to maximize choices and opportunities in any given future.


2007: The final leg of a 3-year process

Ci'Num 2005 was about stock-taking on scientific and technical advances, globalization and its challenges, diversity and social evolution.

Ci'Num 2006 centered around storybuilding: What are the possible futures of digital civilizations? What do these futures hinge upon? What new questions emerge from this story-telling?

Ci'Num 2007 is about making choices and decisions: How can we imagine and be empowered to build our own paths towards the future , despite all the constraints, the uncertainties, all that could legitimately worry us into inaction - or submission?
