THREE CHALLENGES, THREE "COLLEGES", TENS OF EXPERTS
ORGANIZATION OF THE GLOBAL FUTURE COLLEGE
SYSTEMIC APPROACH AND ORGANIZATION "BRICKS & CLICKS"
The Global Future College is innovating in its methodology of work based on the systemic approach and in its Bricks & Clicks organization, which combines virtual and real, and physical encounters and dematerialized work.
The Global Future College promotes and organizes regular meetings of the members of its "Colleges", in order to select the themes of the work, to foster the formation of expert groups, to plan actions, to promote the circulation of ideas, to confront approaches, to combine reflections in the light of different geographical and cultural realities, etc.
The systemic analysis of a topic is organized on a one-year scale and is built around different stages of reflection and work. The exploration and evaluation of the subject is conducted by the "College" constituted by the members grouped according to their expertise and knowledge of the subject at hand.
The working method of the two groups consists, first of all, of interpreting values and cultures in the face of the challenges of modernity. In a second phase, the two groups will jointly seek and formulate proposals concerning the three themes within workshops by disciplines, linked by a collaborative Extranet platform.
THE GLOBAL FUTURE MEETINGS
The Global Future College will offer annual conferences of civil society leaders and experts: The Global Future Meetings.
The annual conferences will be organized by the management of The Global Future College in various locations that will welcome them around the world. Each workshop manager will present the conclusions, suggestions and proposals of his team on the subject on which his Workshop has worked.
The purpose of these meetings is to exchange and compare points of view, present and confront ideas. It is essential that points of agreement and points of disagreement are clearly indicated.
After a vote of all the participants on the suggestions / recommendations, the Global Future College Committee will conclude by presenting a general synthesis of the proposals selected in each Workshop and of the new problems to be studied by discipline.
