IV Congress of the Future closes

Yesterday the IV Congress of the Future, “The Crossroads of the 20th Century,” came to a close. The congress gathered political leaders, academics, and specialists in Chile for four days of analysis on the future of the planet and on the living conditions of its population.

The congress was organized by the Future Challenges Commission of the Chilean Senate, chaired by Senator Guido Girardi. Summarizing the four days of activities, he stated, “We conversed with first-rate scientists from around the world, on what I would say are the forefront of the most important challenges facing Chile and all of humanity.”

The conclusions of the experts highlight the fact that investment is lacking in science and technology. Senator Girardi will soon present President Bachelet with a proposal on this subject and on the possible creation of a ministry of science, innovation, and technology.
