Global Future 2045 Congress Program Announced

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 03, 2013

Dmitry Itskov, founder of the 2045 Initiative, today announced the preliminary program for the two-day Global Future 2045 congress (GF2045) event at New York’s Alice Tully Hall on June 15 – 16, 2013. Global Future 2045 is premised on the notion that, in order for civilization to move to a higher stage of development, humanity vitally needs a scientific revolution and significant spiritual changes that will be inseparably linked, supporting and supplementing each other.

“I am thrilled to see the Congress come together so cohesively around a diverse set of topics all devoted to a central mission,” commented Mr. Itskov. “The Congress will be a first in terms of bringing together the world’s leading scientists, technologists and spiritual leaders who are all helping to bring the strategies for the further self-directed evolution of humanity.“

Also to be unveiled at the conference, and recently announced, is the Dmitry Avatar-A head which is an exact robotic replica of the head of Mr. Dmitry Itskov himself that was created by award-winning roboticist Dr. David Hanson, founder of Hanson Robotics. Hanson is best known for his robotic androids of Albert Einstein and Philip K. Dick, and the latter will also be exhibited at the GF2045 congress.
