Guest of Honor

Born in 1916, industrial engineer, architectural designer, social engineer, futurist and thinker Jaque Fresco is considered to be a modern-day Leonardo Da Vinci and a peer to Einstein and Buckminster Fuller. He resides in Florida.

The author of many documentaries, applied projects and patents, Jacque Fresco serves as a consultant to heads of state and a variety of institutions. Fresco, who together with his assistant Roxanne Meadows created the Venus Project, is one of the most experienced and respected living futurists.

When Jacque Fresco's social conscious began to take form following the Great Depression of 1926-30, he set about designing the new world civilization which we could establish if we used our knowledge correctly.

Fresco asserts that the problems faced by mankind and their fears for the future cannot be resolved by “famine-based” systems and approaches. He recommends the construction from ground up of a culture in which the great problems of humanity such as hunger, poverty and war are deemed unacceptable and preventable.

At the same time, Fresco demonstrates what he believes and says with concrete models.

Many people today see the necessity for heightened sensitivity to ethical values and the establishment of an international legal order to create a sustainable future. Fresco says, “If we truly want to put an end to present global and social problems, we must accept the world and its resources as the common heritage of all mankind.”

Asserting that we can face and thus solve the problems involved in establishing a global, resource-based civilization, Fresco will explain at the Futurists Summit how this will happen, and what awaits us in the future.
