World Resource Simulation Center

“How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?”

Video Introduction:

Thirty Years Ago, Buckmister Fuller suggested that with all the interrelated global problems of our time; Population, Energy, Climate Change, Disease, Food, Water, etc. It is necessary to have one place where the best minds can visualize the scope of the worlds problems, and suggest solutions.

This is the concept that developed into the World Resource Simulation Center, a project of San Diego's own Global Energy Network Institute.
