Projects and initiatives
Currently FFF is developing 3 basic projects:
“Charter of Future”
“Institute of Humanity”
Charter of Future (in partnership with the the social movement “Ukraine is me” and the voluntary organization “Patriot”).
The aim of the project is to change principles and mechanisms of public management in the Ukraine. It has exhausted its potential of post-soviet development and needs a spurt to enter the global world.
The project intends to:
- Build up social movement “For Ukraine’s Reformation” (link to the public events materials)
- Develop an education research complex to form a new generation and Ukraine’s new elite
- Create a “screen” - an infrastructurе mechanism to display and analyze complete and verified data regarding the Ukraine’s ongoing situation and its global perspectives, as well as detailed working through the aspectual components of reformation of the state.
The following aspectual groups have been created:
- Governance Mechanisms of Transformation Group;
- Economic Modelling Group;
- Security Group;
- Healthcare Group;
- Education Group.
In total, near 1000 people have participated in the groups’ activities and Charter of the Future events.
The project aims at creation of a communication platform to discuss philosophy, concepts and projects of the Ukraine’s future. It has been organized as an exposition of the Ukraine’s future visions, a discussion board and a platform to coordinate united actions.
The project was started in 2017.
The research group entitled “Humanity Institute” conducts a study of philosophical basics and develops means of transition towards Humanity as one whole. The Institute was founded by T. Bebeshko, S. Datsyuk, V. Nikitin and Y. Chudnovskyi.
The project’s goal is to develop a high-potential model to organize Humanity. Current international system of institutes not only proved to be incapable of meeting the existing challenges, but also failed at uniting Humanity to build a common Future.
The project was started as a response to a contest for a new architecture of Humanity, initiated by Global Challenges Foundation, Sweden (link to the foundation website). Its members are FFF’s leading experts, namely Volodymyr Nikitin, Yuri Chudnovskyi and Taras Bebeshko.
Currently the project is on the organizational stage, where the scope of work is being defined, engineering-research teams in various fields are being formed (ecology, resources of the future, philosophy and the language of Humanity), relations with similar projects are being established, and the Institute’s resources base is being formed.
