The Future Consensus Institute is a nonprofit research center established in December, 2015. Contributions were made by our founder, Mr.Cho Chang-gul, chairman of Hanssem Co. Ltd. We conduct targeted research on four main topics that are crucial to reaching three main objectives.
We are a startup nonprofit research organization that is poised for a quick ramp up through partnerships.
Yeosijae is the beneficiary of the largest endowment in Korean think-tank history.
We are in the finalizing stages of optimizing our strategy for acheiving the most public benefit with these funds, and we invite you to check back in the coming months for updates on research and our progress.
Josepth Stiglitz, Nobel laureate in economics,
pointed out that technological innovation in the United States and urbanization in China would be
two key events affecting mankind’s development in the 21st century.
Based on an understanding of technological change and urbanization at global scale,
our Institute explores ways to alleviate international conflicts and to increase cooperation for
co-prosperity among East Asian countries.
Sustainability should be an innate characteristic of future civilizations.
This view is in opposition to how productivity has been the most highly
cherished characteristic in our industrial civilization.
We will engage and lead global discussions on how our principles should change,
and how that change be institutionalized in political and social structures,
ultimately to be materialized in the natural and physical environment.
Digital technologies have changed ways of living of the people in the world.
We will look into unleashing the transformative potential of digital technology,
equally paying attention to the negative consequences of
those technological innovations.
Human civilizations have evolved through exchanges of people and things
belonging to different cultures.
We believe that a new civilization that leaps beyond the current dichotomy
between East and West should emerge in the near future.
Our Institute has the goal of experimenting new ways of urban life in East Asian countries in
order to envision how these next generation civilizations may look like.
