What does the future hold in store for our world? What threats brought on by global warming, the global economic crisis or our sometimes indiscriminate manipulation of technology could cause major upheaval in the years, decades and centuries to come? And above all, what ethical, social and technological revolutions could presage a new era full of hope instead of the highly pessimistic predictions that we are so frequently warned about?

This book is a remarkable work that takes you on a journey into the future with over a hundred images in the form of photorealistic digital pictures of what lies in store for us, to help you appreciate the challenges of this century, the trials that lie ahead, the solutions we have at hand and the hopes that remain.

Dozens of leading figures from all over the world — Nobel Prize winners, scientists, explorers, astronauts, representatives of indigenous communities, philosophers and environmentalists — have worked with French author and futurist Yannick Monget and involved themselves in this project to present their personal visions of the future, their warnings and above all their messages of hope for the future of humanity and our world through this book.

Setting out first of all the various challenges weighing down on us, against which we must join forces to reverse our rush towards the abyss fueled by our insatiable desire for profit and our consumerist greed, this book then opens into another, overtly optimistic, section that reveals what the world could look like if consciences were aroused and humanity took stock, favoring transformation over revolution and finally establishing a symbiotic relationship with the living world; reinstating ethics at the heart of society and respect for the environment, and the quest for social justice as the fundamental pillars of our future development.

A veritable plea for a total rethink of society, to build a future where our dreams would once again be built on our imagination, and where dreams would finally shape the world that will be ours tomorrow.
