The Center for Modeling the Future continues the implementation of the international youth project "HORIZON 2100". Over the past years, its participants, experts, jury members and organizers were representatives of 42 countries on all continents.


Young people from any country, of any nationalities aged 16 to 26 are invited.

IMPORTANT! The time of severe trials and shocks for all mankind, associated with the pandemic and its economic and social consequences, continues. On January 15, 2021, UN Secretary General António Guterres issued a statement: “Our world has crossed another tragic milestone: The Covid-19 pandemic has already claimed two million lives. (at the time of the opening of the competition, according to world statistical agencies, the total number of deaths from coronavirus infection in the world was already 2,551,354 people) Behind this truly staggering number are names and faces: a smile that has become only a memory; forever empty chair at the dinner table; a room in which the silence of a loved one echoes. " "We all have to learn serious lessons from this crisis ... But there is one important fact that is beyond doubt - the world was not ready for this."

For this reason, in 2021, the organizers of the competition will welcome works in which participants will present their solutions aimed at overcoming possible future pandemics and building human resilience to possible future challenges.
