[Duurzaamlijst] Fwd: Institute for Global Futures Research (IGFR)

Hallo duurzame vrienden, 

Onlangs ontvingen wij onderstaand bericht, waarin het "Institute 
for Global Futures Research (IGFR)" zich voorstelt en 
aankondigde dat we een gratis proefabonnement op hun Global 
Futures Bulletin zouden krijgen. 

Daarvan hebben we inmiddels een paar afleveringen ontvangen, en 
het ziet er heel degelijk en serieus uit. 

Ik denk dat iedereen die zich meldt bij het IGFR ook wel zo'n 
proefabonnement kan krijgen. 

Groeten, Dick Verheul

The Institute for Global Futures Research (IGFR) arose out of a series 
of meetings held during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, 1992. 

The IGFR was established in 1995 as an independent research 
centre to explore urgent global issues and longterm future options. 
The brief of the IGFR is to build a macro interdisciplinary 
perspective by researching pivotal issues in the areas of peace and 
social justice, the global environment and climate change, poverty 
and Third World development, human rights and democracy, 
population, resources, international relations, the global economy, 
science and technology, urban planning, and comparative culture, to 
mention but some of the key areas. 

The IGFR produces a twice-monthly journal (Global Futures 
Bulletin) disseminated via e-mail to all its members and 
subscribers.  Members and subscribers include students and 
community leaders, members of various religious affiliations and 
non-government activist organisations, scientific research centres, 
university academics, and senior officials in the corporate sector, 
government policy makers and multilateral organisations, in 76 

The IGFR coordinates an Open Research Program where research 
teams comprising experts and advisers are grouped around 
40 interest areas.  Using futures and other methodologies as well as 
non-methodological (intuitive) approaches, we draw results together 
from different disciplines to identify major trends, global parameters, 
continuities and discontinuities, and use this understanding to generate 
options for the future.

increasingly becoming financially self-reliant from membership and 
subscription revenue. 

Membership fees are the same as subscription fees. 

Membership includes subscription to the Global Futures Bulletin 
and additionally means that the subscriber supports the aims and 
work of the IGFR as an independent NGO, but not necessarily the 
views expressed in its publications.

Individual		A$35 / US$26 
Concession		A$24 / US$18 
Corporate/library    	A$68 / US$52
