The Vision is Explore and Unite!

"We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world."
~J. William Fulbright

The twenty-second century is on the horizon and the time is now for youth to begin thinking and caring about the world they will inhabit.

Youth are challenged to publish original research projects (e.g. website and/or video stories) that explore how the positive actions and contributions of local individuals have the power to improve, preserve and unite communities.

In partnership with the World Future Society, youth are asked to share their dreams for the future - by thinking about the possible future, the probable future, the preferable future and the preventable future. Projects that best illustrate "future thinking," are invited to the World Future Society international conference WorldFuture 2013: Exploring the Next Horizon, July 19-21, 2013 Illinois, USA, however travel expenses will not be covered.
