The Futures Forum
The Futures of Women 2030 is Subject of Thought Experiment Launched Today
Silver Spring, MD, March 24, 2014 ____
The Futures Forum has launched a global thought experiment on ‘The Futures of Women 2030” in order to promote greater participation in review of scenarios about 21st century prospects for women; and improving the dialogue on the goals for women by the year 2030. Although there has been an increased realization and recognition of women’s rights and women’s empowerment since 2000, gaps in legal and policy frameworks, implementation and research remain. Likewise different women are experiencing different realities in societies and countries around the world.
With Gender Equality, cited as one of the fifteen complex global decision points by The Millennium Project, and the pending decision on goals for women in the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals, the thought experiment on The Futures of Women, aims to gather input from a wide variety of women and men, across generations and cultures to see what scenarios may hold for women futures in the decade leading to 2030. A secondary aim is to gather collective wisdom that helps to create the paradigm shift that moves human society towards acceptance of women’s equal opportunity. (>>> read more here)

MONTSERRAT UNVEILS MASTER PLAN FOR GROWTH
Chief Executive Invites Developer/Investment Community to Partner
In New Beginning for Eastern Caribbean Nation
MIAMI, FL – March 14, 2014 – Amid a week of cruise industry focus surrounding the international Cruise Shipping Miami convention, a soon-to-be reborn island nation took centre stage. Montserrat, a British Overseas Territory, this week introduced its Master Plan for Growth, a specific and aggressive layout of post-volcanic, privately-funded development on the northwest side of the island that includes an elegant “centrepiece” hotel property, a marine village and service centre, a port to welcome ferries, small to mid-size cruise ships and private yachts, and a variety of incentive-driven commercial and residential investment possibilities.
Following a period of Mother Nature-driven devastation, beginning in 1989 with Hurricane Hugo and later a series of volcanic eruptions in 1995, basic infrastructure and service recovery and improvements are now in place and the next chapter in development and return to economic self-sufficiency is moving forward. Montserrat Development Corporation (MDC), an autonomous agency established by the Government of Montserrat, is mandated with leading this island renaissance. (>>> read more)
