Three visitors from Common Purpose came to KMi on 8th March to get a 'glimpse of the future.'
Common Purpose states it vision as follows: “For a democracy to be strong, it needs an active civil society, in which citizens are both informed and connected. Common Purpose's vision is that we can improve the way society works by increasing the number of informed and engaged individuals who are actively involved in the future of the areas in which they live and work. ”
Paul Mulholland and Marc Eisenstadt spent an hour with the visitors, describing current KMi work underway on the CIPHER ClimatePrediction.net, BuddySpace, Magpie and HexagonVO
