Call-to-Committment

A Humanity 2.0 Forum 'call-to-commitment' indicates the desired joint-venture of the particular Forum. Rallying support for the venture is the objective of the Forum and the venture's early success is Humanity 2.0's objective for the year.

x

Exploratory

A Humanity 2.0 'exploratory panel' is intended to examine a particular impediment to human progress and explore potential solutions. The objective of an 'exploratory panel' is to determine the likelihood a single venture could be brought to bare to significantly address said impediment and whether future efforts of Humanity 2.0 are merited or not at this time.

Project Vision

Project Vision is a Humanity 2.0 effort specifically designed to provide the roadmap needed in order to accelerate human progress.

Project Vision has three objectives.
First, to formulate a common vision for humanity that communicates the kind of human civilization we should be striving to build. Second, to identify the most significant impediments to realizing this vision. Three, to triage them in order to provide a roadmap for action.
