The process


Millennia2015, "Women actors of development for the global challenges" is an international research process which gathers women and men determined to enforce the empowerment of women and the respect of human rights in every country. It is a worldwide think-and-action tank supported by a steering committee and thematic or regional communities, counting now more than 1.000 members from all the continents. Millennia2015 invites us to think together until 2015 about those issues in order to build a sustainable future in solidarity for all the women at the horizon 2025.



The method


This research work is built with foresight as a method ( and the information society as context, in solidarity and interaction with those - women and men - who do not have an access to information and communication technologies. It is a collaborative project including research centers, international processes, civil society and all the stakeholders acting towards the same goals.



Your contribution to the foresight research


Your contribution is very important for Millennia2015's foresight research process. Studying the results of the "information transfer" phase organized in Liege in 2008, we have extracted the 37 variables of Millennia2015. Among them, we would like you to choose the variables that you relate to most, to analyze and document them by answering the questions proposed below and publishing your answers on the online form. We suggest you to collect different testimonies in order to present the situation as precisely as possible. It will also be interesting to study the chosen variables in interaction with others that complete them in order to identify crossed impacts which emerge from the analysis.



Millennia2015 Action Plan


The variable analysis ("fiches variables") you will present will help us to identify the long term issues, the problems and the possible solutions linked to Millennia2015 37 variables in relation with your country, region or community. We will analyze them together to formulate scenarios, to identify the long term issues, to build the vision at the horizon 2025 and the strategy to reach it. As a result, we will build the Millennia2015 Action Plan that will be finalized during the international conference organized at the UNESCO on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 December 2012. 


Your participation to the Millennia2015 conference at the UNESCO


We are conscious of the magnitude of this research and already thank you send your contribution as soon as possible by completing the personalized online forms proposed with each variable. All the contributions will be taken into account, valorized and published by Millennia2015. The contributors who will provide a detailed research work for several variables will be invited to participate to the international conference organized under the auspices of the UNESCO in Paris on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 December 2012 for the "knowledge process" phase of Millennia2015.










As part of Millennia2015 foresight methodology, here are the 8 main questions we ask you to answer about every variable you will analyse. Those questions are detailed again in the questionnaire linked to every variable.




   Eight main questions



Question 1 - Definition of the variable

Define and explain the title of this variable on the basis of the context (country, region, community, ...) in which you evolve (with women's point of view).




Question 2 - Retrospective assessment

How has this variable influenced - or not - women's empowerment during the last 10 (or 20) years?




Question 3 - Actual or emerging trends

What is the impact of this variable on women's daily life in your country, region or community, as well as on their participation to ongoing development and progress?




Question 4 - Uncertainty and discontinuities

To what extent can the elements of this variable stop the process of women's empowerment and their active contribution to desirable futures?




Question 5 - Possible assumptions of evolution

How will this variable modify the status of women's empowerment as well as their role in society in 2025?

As an example, formulate some (3, 4 ou 5) alternative hypothesis of evolution at the horizon 2025.




Question 6 - Issues

What are the issues of this variable for women? What have they to lose or gain?




Question 7 - Concrete examples

Provide concrete examples showing the interest of taking this variable into account in the assumptions or alternatives of the future.
(Why should this variable be taken into account as a priority in the assumptions or alternatives of the future?)




Question 8 - Sources, bibliography and links

List the sources of information that you present, the bibliography and the useful links. Documents, pictures or videos may be added to the online questionnaire.




For each studied question, it will be useful to identify the corresponding source-variables in the Millennia2015 IT2008 report (
