Information about the project
Millennia 2015, Women actors of development for the global challenges
The specificity of Millennia 2015 is to work in the context of the information society with foresight as a method. The goals of Millennia 2015 are to increase the potential of women, to reinforce their capacities, to encourage their investment and to fully recognize their responsibility in technological development. Millennia 2015 research plans to create more equality and greater solidarity, taking care of cultural and linguistic diversity, as well as to make conjectures about new models of development taking into consideration women's needs and values. The challenge of Millennia 2015 is to contribute to build a vision of a future we all want to be better for women, in a world conscious of the issues related to human rights and to sustainable development. The objective is to build, by 2015, a positive vision of the future by women for the entire world by 2025 (www.millennia2015.org). Millennia 2015 Community contributes to the process and the 3 international conferences (Liege 2008, Paris 2011, New York 2015). Join us, welcome!
