AL-KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The future comes at you fast, as the expression goes, and for humanity, that 
future holds both great promise and great peril. On the one hand, agricultural 
innovation, technological breakthroughs, medical advances, and social progress 
should continue to make life better, easier, healthier, and more equitable for 
billions of people around the globe. Yet on the other hand, resource 
limitations, digital threats, emerging diseases, and climate change pose 
daunting challenges to humanity's flourishing.

Proactively addressing all of these issues and more is the province of the 
interdisciplinary field known as futures studies. To move this increasingly 
critical field forward, Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU) is partnering 
with the World Futures Studies Federation (WFSF) in convening the WFSF 24th 
World Conference. This international conference, held from 26 to 29 October 
2021 in Berlin, Germany, will bring together organizations worldwide to 
collaborate in effecting positive change in the present by expansively 
envisioning the future. 

"The importance of all people in all places on our shared planet working 
together to forge a bright future grows more urgent every day, and in this 
critical effort, the forward-thinking of futures studies plays a vital role," 
said Dr. Issa Al Ansari, President of PMU and a keynote speaker at the WFSF 
24th World Conference. "We are honored at PMU to be a main partner of the World 
Futures Studies Federation." 

A global non-governmental organization, WFSF is a consultative partner with the 
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and 
the United Nations. The organization has members in over 60 countries and has 
been a driving force in futures studies since its founding in 1973. WFSF has 
sought to move the study of the future from the realm of prediction of possible 
and probable futures into the charting and shaping of preferable futures. 

The WFSF 24th World Conference will assemble world-leading thinkers in futures 
studies and related fields in a series of keynotes, panels, and workshops. Open 
debate will be fostered and scientific papers will be presented and discussed. 

"Through our partnership in the World Futures Studies Federation, Prince 
Mohammad Bin Fahd University is demonstrating our commitment to future 
generations," said Dr. Al Ansari. "Everything is at stake. But with futures 
studies and the many promising paths forward that this field can afford us, we 
should be optimistic that we can overcome even the world's most dire
