The Futures Forum (TFF) will commemorate UN International Water Day, March 22nd with Project SOFIE’s Twitter Exploration on ‘The Future of Water’ taking center stage. Project SOFIE is a project of ‘The Futures Forum’ in collaboration with ‘function(core)’ a leading immersive reality design company.
Project SOFIE (Social Observation of Futures for International Engagements) was established to glean information on global challenges facing humanity to the year 2030 about the year 2030, in order to assist in ‘storifying’ the UN SDGS & Agenda 2030. Project SOFIE is expected to run for one year.
“Goal 6 of the UN SDGs – Ensure Access to Water and Sanitation For All” exists because 663 million people are still without access and at least 1.8 billion people globally use a source of drinking water that is fecally contaminated; and water scarcity affects more than 40 per cent of the global population and is projected to rise; and every day nearly 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diseases. In order to achieve this goal, we will need to create a widely shared vision of our preferred future and that demands that we move from data to meaning’, says Dr. Claire A. Nelson, the curator of the project.
