The Urban Futurist Organization has accepted as its mission and task, the responsibility of creating models of our collective better future through a new media small business industry. Through this industry, research, books and reports from leading futurist, economists and educators will be turned into Action Information Communication products (videos, CD-ROM’s, DVD’s and movies).
The Urban Futurist Organization offers new ideas on new skills to create wealth, to think about a cooperative economy and to think wisely about our collective better future.
We first create pictures of the future in our mind’s eye, then we create models to demonstrate our thoughts to our visual eyes. Next, our brain-trust views the model and makes necessary adjustments until the model represents our collective thoughts. Then we make it happen!
