Our Mission is to encourage both thinking and action toward a sustainable earth. In so doing, we recognize that all phenomena and problems are interrelated. Based upon research, investigation, experience, and innovation from within our group as well as from around the world, we will present findings to leaders, governments, civil society, and the general public in hopes of creating paradigm shifts that will promote altering actions and policies toward the planet as well as sustainability of life on earth. In our individual work, lives and writings, we enact these insights into a better future for the human race.

Our past and current projects are:




The Future of The Western Hemisphere.

The USA Club of Rome Report on the Future of the American Hemisphere has been published in January 2011. The data base and world model is a fifth generation model International Futures by Barry Hughes (1996) of University of Denver, who has kindly made available to us this data for regions, the hemisphere and each of the 38 nations. The data examined in detail by 15 committees of experts with extensive field experience in their subjects: governance, economics, social issues, health and drinking water, environment, education, food and agriculture, population, poverty alleviation, arts-language-culture, security, religion, legal issues, and several others. Priorities of critical problems making the hemisphere or nations unsustainable were decided on for each committee. Then potential solutions to these problems were presented. The Report was presented to Stakeholders to activate these solutions. The national Club of Rome associations were consulted and involved by the committees (Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina).

The Future of the Arctic. A Key to Global Sustainability.

The Report on the Future of the Arctic has been released in June 2012. The study, which started in October 2011, was conducted by 11 American scientists, lawyers and doctors, all members of the USACOR, divided in three committees:

a) Legal and Political Commitee. This Committee studied the relevant political issues, such as the progressive independence of Greenland from Denmark and the legal issues related to the application of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 1982 to the mineral exloitation in the Arctic Sea;

b) Energy and Resources Commitee. This Committee analyzed the prospectives for discovery of new mineral resources in the Arctic, in particular oil, natural gas, rare earth minerals, uranium and water;

c) Population and Health Committee. This Committee was formed to study the current health condition of local populations in the Arctic, their access to healthcare and the migration of ethnic groups in the region.

The Future of the Pacific and its Relevance for Geo Economic Interests.

The Report on the Future of the Pacific has been released in June 2013. The study, which started in October 2012, was conducted by 8 American authors, all members of the USACOR, divided in three committees:

a) Legal and Political Commitee. This Committee studied the development of free trade agreements in the Pacific, the future of U.S. China and U.S. Japan relations and the rising strategic role of Indonesia in the region;

b) Energy and Resources Commitee. This Committee analyzed the future developments of resources in the Pacific and gave recommendations on exploiting these resources with the minimum impact on the environment;

c) Religion and Health Committee. This Committee studied the  treatment of religious minorities and access to healthcare, with recommendations to improve the health conditions of the population in the Pacific countries.

 

The Future of the Atlantic and the Role of Africa in International Development. 

The "Future of the Atlantic and the Role of Africa in International Development" has been completed in June 2014.
