1 Future Cultural Challenges for Europe and the Millennium Project
Jerome C. Glenn The Millennium Project

2 Globalization, localization, and fractilization of cultures are occurring… simultaneously
Half the world is potentially unstable, increasing migration to Europe now-2050 Hence, European identities and social coherence are likely to change Cyber space and cultural tourism could be attractors for future emergent cultures, as well as preserving older cultures

3 Cultural Tourism in the Knowledge Economy
Increasingly educated and wealthy people want more than just beaches and night clubs. Globalization reduces cultural diversity making unique cultural experiences more rare; and hence, valuable. Cultural knowledge is a competitive advantage in the global knowledge economy. Provides income to non-high-tech people Helps preserve the past for future generations Work, play, and tourism are combining Improving cyberspace will open e-tourism

4 Some Futures for Cultural Tourism
Museums’ websites as the tele-tourism hubs with virtual reality interfaces and tele-links to people and events. Cyberspace duplicates cultural objects, historic events, and people for tele-tourists to interact with the past (Second Life) Tele-Europe – section on cyberTourism Home stays via certified cultural tourist agencies Pop-up Euro-Cyber Tourist experiences on computers

5 Korean Shamanic Cultural Tourism

6 Tele-Tourism Cycle Visit the culture in physical space
Discover a culture via the Internet in cyber space

7 No more please… Source:


9 Multi-virtual realties, multi-cultures in CyberSapce

10 Jumping into the Unknown

11 Identity and coherence … 25 Years from now
Identity and coherence … 25 Years from now? Human or machine behind those eyes? r

12 The Millennium Project
... is a new kind of think tank …established in 1996 …after a 3-year feasibility study To help humanity think about the future

13 Millennium Project … May become a TransInstitution UN Universities
Organizations Millennium Project Corporations Governments NGOs … May become a TransInstitution

14 Millennium Project Nodes
Millennium Project Nodes... are groups of individuals and institutions that connect global and local views in: Nodes identify participants, translate questionnaires and reports, and conduct interviews, special research, workshops, symposiums, and advanced training.
