...Wendy Schultz, Futurist
 
Dr. Wendy L. Schultz
  Fellow, World Futures Studies Federation; Fulbright Lecturer/Scholar in Futures Studies, '01-'02; Faculty, Univ. of Houston-Clear Lake; MS in Studies of the Future

In July 2002 I had the great fun of drafting three essays for TechTV's Catalog of Tomorrow; I am currently adapting Catalog content into interactive foresight exercises for this website. From December 2001 through May 2002, I had the honour of joining my colleagues at the Finland Futures Research Centre for a six-month stay as a Fulbright Lecturer and Researcher. I am very grateful to the U.S. Fulbright Commission, the Finland Fulbright Committee, and my colleagues in Turku for this opportunity, and am currently organizing and writing up the resulting research.

From August 1996 through August 2001, I was Visiting Assistant Professor in Studies of the Future at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. During that time I organized two conferences, designed and taught six different graduate seminars, edited the five-year program review, and served for one year as Acting Chair. My sojourn in Houston also included co-designing and teaching a graduate seminar on Public Health Leadership at the University of Texas School of Public Health. My relationship with UHCL and my colleagues in Studies of the Future continues with annual participation in the program's Residential Intensive Summer Session, which offers the Master's program in an innovative combination of immersive, face-to-face classes in two successive summers, joined by year-round on-line activities.

My permanent home is still in Oxford, England [my spouse, Jay Lewis, is the Korea Foundation Lecturer in Korean Studies], where I am currently working with a small group of business and community futurists creating foresight resources for business, government, non-profit, and community leaders. Since moving to the UK, I have also worked with the International Space University, lecturing on futures studies and visioning at ISU's Summer Session `95 in Stockholm, at the inauguration of their Masters program in October 1995 in Strasbourg, France, and most recently at Summer Session '02 in Los Angeles.

Prior to my 1994 move to England, I spent a decade and a half working at the Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies (University of Hawai'i at Manoa). While there I developed participatory workshops to enable people to learn various futures techniques and perspectives experientially. My research experience has included, among other projects: designing group scenario-building for Hawai'i's planners; creating a visioning process for U.S. state courts; developing Hawaii's Ocean Resource Management Plan; planning for sea level rise in the Republic of the Marshall Islands; and forecasting world natural gas trade.

I completed my doctoral dissertation, "Futures Fluency: explorations in vision, leadership, and creativity," in 1995, and have served as both an Executive Council member of the World Futures Studies Federation (WFSF) and as a Course Director for the WFSF Futures Seminar in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

...Summit for the Future report


The Summit for the Future report will be a unique collection of the wisdom, opinions and discussions of the key figures from within European business, government and academia best-placed to know what the future might hold, and how we might develop an agenda to deal with it and direct it. Organised around the five knowledge streams of Trade, Energy, Healthcare, Media & Entertainment, and Science and Technology, it will consist of dedicated contributions from thought leaders, practitioners, policy makers and philosophers, transcripts of speeches, and write-ups of in-stream and cross-stream workshops, round tables and think tanks.

This output will be woven into a guide to the future that will be disseminated to top decision makers across Europe - 50 CEOs and top politicians per stream. Content will be enhanced with graphics, images and other visual aids, supplemented by questionnaires and the views of selected journalists, and summarised and organised into a probable 200 pages that will hopefully be as inspirational as it will be valuable as a guide.

Editor-in-Chief: Paul Holister is an independent nanotechnology and IT consultant and a long-time writer on science and technology in general, and nanotechnology in particular. With a scientific education and many years doing analysis and development of business systems for companies such as Oracle and Shell, Paul approaches new technology from both a scientific and commercial perspective.
Paul is a founder of the European NanoBusiness Association, principal author of Cientifica's original, highly-acclaimed, Nanotechnology Opportunity Report and was the editor and main author of one of the world's most widely-read nanotechnology newsletters, TNT Weekly, for the first three years of its existence. Paul's writing on nanotechnology recently won him the Foresight Institute's Communications prize.
Paul was born in the USA, raised largely in England and currently lives in the south of France with his Dutch wife and three children of somewhat indeterminate nationality.
