Thematic Issue Series on
“International and Cross-Cultural Perspectives on the Future”
fourth thematic issue, like the first three, has several objectives:
constructive dialog on the future to more peoples and cultures.
insights on the ways in which people will live and work.

lifestyles that people often take for granted (for example, the
alarm clock culture, or notions of prosperity or identity) and that
can impact the way that we live, work, and think. Futurists

your nation's or culture's wisdom that can be helpful in meeting the
challenges of the future. Other theme-consistent articles are
also encouraged. Click
