About Us

The Alternative Planetary Futures Institute (ApFi) was founded in Washington D.C. by Victor V. Motti and Jerome C. Glenn to be a planetary think tank.

We are nonprofit and non commercial.

We have research and advocacy programs focused on Planetary Consciousness (See a definition here)


This is accomplished under the leadership of our world-class scientific council and by the contribution of a volunteer planetary creative council (groups of individuals and organizations) around the world that connect planetary views and futures research to help expand imagination about the possible futures and build preferred futures.


What we do and support:

  • Networking among authors, artists, researchers, educators and scholars to think together about the planetary futures.

  • Designing, developing and using frameworks for the planetary identity, the technological progress, and the scientific worldview.

  • Providing inclusive and participatory systems to measure positive planetary change.

  • Collecting resources, books and media that primarily explore the planetary futures.

The Future Ages of Collective Awakening

Executive Summary

Weak and strong signals, from diverse and independent sources, point to an imminent global consciousness, suggesting spirit, mind, and ethical revolutions. On the horizon, we observe a new rush hour of the prophets, ideologies, and cults calling for first values and first principles. In 2100 the planetary consciousness will push machine-humanity towards increasing freedom. In 3000, at the dawn of the cosmic age, the myth of the sacred rock will be re-defined around the entire planet Earth.
