   Genesis of Millennia 2015



In the context of its missions, The Destree Institute participates in the World Summit on the Information Society whose innovative concept includes all the stakeholders in its works organized by the United Nations. On the occasion of its sessions in Geneva in 2003 and in Tunis in 2005, Marie-Anne Delahaut, director of research at The Destree Institute and head of its Information Society Unit, has developed a research about "Foresight and governance of the internet" with and international conference, a book and a DVD-book presented to the WSIS in Tunis with the support of the International Organization of La Francophonie.


This work has led Marie-Anne Delahaut to understand the plight of many women at all levels in the world: she has build the idea of a foresight research process on the theme of "Women actors of development for the global challenges ". Active in the basic team of the project, Françoise Massit-Folléa named it "Millennia" and we decided to align our timeline to "2015" in ligne with the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and with the WSIS, to which Millennia2015 contributesPhilippe Destatte has developed the foresight methodology structured by Marie-Anne Delahaut, in partnership with the Millennium Project. The Community of Millennia2015 is growing and gathers exerts from all countries and from the United Nations.


The UNESCO Director General, Mrs Irina Bokova, has decided to recognize The Destree Institute as an NGO in consultative status with the UNESCO. The international conference "Millennia2015, An Action Plan for Women's Empowerment" has been organised by The Destree Institute and the UNESCO at the UNESCO Headquarters on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 December 2012. Foresight research methodology qualifying trainings and specific meetings were organized on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 December at the UNESCO.

   Women: 1908-2008, one century of action 



On the 8th of March 1908, the premise of the International Women's Day was born out of the actions of women workers demanding suffrage for women, as well as political, economic and social rights. They also acted against child labour and against the war. The Women's Day was instituted in 1910 and has been celebrated on the 8th of March nearly all over the world ever since, with a recognition by the United Nations in 1977 as a "United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace".


Millennia is a feminine version of "Millennium" and its first session gave us an opportunity for commemorating the United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace, one century after the first massive actions women organized for their human rights on the 8th March 1908.






   Foresight Research Process



More than a new conference, or a new association or a new network, fuelled by new publications and a new website, Millennia is a thni; and action tank that will take the best of all those elements in order to place new milestones to empower women's entrepreneurship at large and on a global level. It is probably the first international process to rely on foresight as a method and the information society as context in exploring and setting priorities for women's future.

With Millennia 2015, we intend to use ICT in order to durably contribute to the wellbeing of all citizens around the world. Millennia 2015 gathers all women and men concerned by those questions, in order, to think, to decide and to act, by 2015, at the horizon 2025.

The process is going on and we plan to impact on the political agenda at all levels.
