The Arlington Institute

Founded in 1989 by futurist John L. Petersen, The Arlington Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit research institute that specializes in thinking about global futures and trying to influence rapid, positive change. TAI encourages systemic, non-linear approaches when considering the magnitude of change that is on our horizon. We therefore strive to be agents of change by creating intellectual frameworks and tool-sets for understanding the transition in which we are living.

TAI believes that we are living in an era of global transition, to a degree that our species has never seen before. The exponential increase of human knowledge, and the acceleration of its application through technology, is propelling humanity towards a new era of thought and endeavor. Society, science, ecology and commerce are converging at the intersection of danger and opportunity. A complexity and unpredictability that is beyond our past experience characterize the challenges at hand. If humanity's preferred future is to be realized, new tools for strategic planning and problem solving must be invented and combined. We must think differently.

We have made it our mission to help facilitate this transition, and to connect and associate with like-minded people so that we may together embrace the opportunities of this future.
