LEAP launches MAP "to renew our stock of potential futures"
With MAP (Magazine d’Anticipation Politique), LEAP/E2020 has decided to launch a free four-monthly publication with the following aims:
. to let political anticipation tackle political and social themes
. to reach a largest possible number of citizens interested in understanding which changes will characterize the « world after » the crisis.

MAP is thus a new editorial space giving new « anticipators », trained to LEAP/E2020’s methods, the opportunity to share their analyses regarding our common future.

Every four month, MAP will present to the world some rational European visions of what the future has for us. I am indeed convinced that the Europeans can play a key role in facilitating the big transition which this global systemic crisis in fact represents. But for that they must recover their capacity to think the future in an independent manner!

LEAP/E2020 and its partner NewropMag will do the maximum to help the MAP team contribute to the renovation of future visions which have increasingly become obsolescent since the start of the crisis. The future that the « Western world » still used to dream of less than ten years ago has severely aged and will not survive the middle of this decade. It is therefore a matter of urgency to renew our « stock of potential futures » and try to let emerge those most « wishable ».

Distributed in three languages to begin with (French, German and Italian), MAP will soon add on to those English, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic in order to reach a global readership.

All I have to do now is wish MAP a global success of similar scope to that met by the Global Europe Anticipation Bulletin of which it is a general-interest complement.
