, Vice-President of the Intergovernmental Council of UNESCO
, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Grigoryevich Chuchalin, who made a report and presentation.
Professor Chuchalin 's report addressed three main issues:
1) the noosphere and the modern interpretation of this concept
2) viral gene pool and prerequisites for the emergence of new infectious diseases
3) modern approaches to human security
Professor Chuchalin emphasized the special place and importance of V.I. Vernadsky's ideas about the biosphere and the noosphere for understanding how vulnerable a person and the whole world has become from external influences
. Today we are struck by the far-sightedness of the views of this scientist, expressed by him in the mid-30s of the last century in relation to planetary processes in which human society is also involved.
Speaking about such a phenomenon as the spread of coronavirus
, Professor Chuchalin noted that this infectious disease is one of the oldest human diseases, which currently has 52 serotypes. The gene pool of this viral disease indicates its extreme spread in the biosphere. It is difficult to name living matter that would not be affected by it or would not be infected with a virus
Concluding the report, Professor Chuchalin expressed the opinion that the XXI century should be recognized as the century of creating a new generation of vaccines that will fight various types of infections
Then the Forum participants entered into the discussion of this report. Opinion was expressed by the executive director of the Club of Rome Carlos Alvarez Pereira (Spain) and members of the club

. Close attention was paid to the cultural aspects of learning foreign languages.
On the margins of the section "Global Development and problems of global governance", researchers discussed topical issues of global and energy security, the ethics of artificial intelligence, as well as the crisis caused by the pandemic
. An interdisciplinary approach to the study of the issues raised has become a distinctive feature. [...]
The International Expert Meeting on the formation of a new scientific discipline "Ethnoglobalistics" became significant for the development of world science
. During the debates, the participants justified the need for its development, discussed the development of a methodology. The growth of ethnopolitical conflicts, the role of migration processes in the global world, the influence of globalization on the ethnic factor
– this is not the whole list of reasons for the isolation of ethnoglobalism as an independent scientific discipline.
The third day of the conference was remembered by the interdisciplinary seminar of the scientific and educational school of Moscow University "Mathematical methods of analysis of complex systems"
The participants touched upon both economic and political, philosophical, environmental aspects of modeling and forecasting global processes
. At the seminar, the importance of scientific projects of the teaching staff of the entire scientific school was noted, since globalism is a scientific discipline that is a link between natural sciences and humanities
. The increasing role of China and India as actors in international relations was noted, as well as the revolutionary nature of the Paris Climate Agreement and the relevance of the immortal legacy of V.I. Vernadsky
It should be mentioned that India and China were discussed not only in this section
. At a special expert session on the role of Europe in a changing world, moderated by V. Schwimmer and V.I. Kulikov, disputes broke out about scenarios for the development of the European region. Financial, migration and epidemiological crises indicate the need to reform the foreign and domestic policy of the European Union. What awaits Europe in the future? Cooperation with Latin America? Rivalry with India and China? Implementation of the Lisbon–Vladivostok concept?
Scientists tried to find answers to these questions.
The moderators of the expert session "Transformation of ethno-confessional and political identities in the era of global development" were I.E. Krugovykh and I.L. Shershnev. Francis Fukuyama in his new work "Identity, the desire for recognition and the politics of rejection" notes the global trend of striving for a liberal world order
. At the moment, the issues of the transformation of ethno-confessional and political identity are closely related to the civilizational identity and the deepening of the unity of the nation. The modern search for transformations will protect the identities and civilizational codes of many peoples of the world
The final section of the third day was a round table of young scientists "Global development and growth opportunities in the XXI century
", which was moderated by Professor O.G. Leonova and lecturer V.A. Goliney. The issues of country, regional and global development were on the agenda.
The VII International Scientific Conference "Actual Problems of Global Research: Global Development and limits of Growth in the XXI century" ended on June 18 with the summing up of the conference by the moderators of the venues and the meeting of the Society for Global Research (OGIS). In total, more than 380 people from various regions of Russia and 50 countries of the world took part in the conference.

GLOBAL TECHNOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES IN THE LIGHT OF CYBERNETIC REVOLUTION AND THEORY OF LONG CYCLES
Authors: Grinin, Leonid; Grinin, Anton L.
Journal: Journal of Globalization Studies. Volume 6, Number 2 / November 2015
"In the present paper, on the basis of the theory of production principles and production revolutions, we reveal the interrelation between K-waves and major technological breakthroughs in history and make some predictions about features of the sixth Kondratieff wave in the light of the Cybernetic Revolution which, we think, started in the 1950s. We assume that the sixth K-wave in the 2030s and 2040s will merge with the final phase of the Cybernetic Revolution (which we call the phase of self-regulating systems). This period will be characterized by breakthroughs in medical technologies which will manage to combine many other technologies into a single complex of MBNRIC-technologies (med-bio-nano-robo-info-cognitive technologies). The article offers some predictions concerning the development of these technologies."

"The Great Narrative is a guide for anyone seeking to better understand how the world has evolved since the pandemic started and what solutions can make us more resilient, equitable and sustainable.
The book recognizes that the problems for which we collectively must find solutions are both major and manifold. Vital issues abound: economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal and technological. But solutions do exist and are within our grasp. The Great Narrative proposes some hopeful and inspiring narratives around them. In that sense, it is an optimistic book that categorically rejects the negativity that permeates too many doomsday narratives ready to consign us to a future of oblivion. It asserts that human creativity, ingenuity and innate sociality will prevail, and it offers a comprehensive framework to explain why.

Истоки появления Будапештского клуба связаны с событиями, имевшими место во второй половине ХХ века. Одним из них стало создание в 1968 году Римского клуба...
"The origins of the Budapest Club are connected with the events that took place in the second half of the twentieth century. One of them was the creation in 1968 of the Club of Rome, a progressive scientific and analytical center with a global base for activities, especially active in Europe. In Hungary, the club was represented by Erwin Laszlo, who became an active member of the Club of Rome, after the publication of The Limits of Growth (1972) in his country. Mr. Laszlo's active activity did not stand aside and, in turn, in 1977, he already presented the 5th report "The Goals of Humanity" to the Club of Rome.
[...] The period from 1988 to 1992 was the most dramatic for the countries of Eastern and Central Europe in the second half of the XX century. During this time , E. Laszlo put forward a proposal to create an international movement of "artists and writers", which was to become the basis for the creation of the Budapest Club and become a partner to the Club of Rome. The idea of creating such a movement included the "soft factors" of the limits of growth: values, expectations, worldviews and states of mind and consciousness. E. Laszlo suggested that Budapest has ideal conditions for such intellectual and cultural activities.[...]
The real work began after 1995, when the main directions of the club's activities were determined, and especially after the first conference was held in 1996, which was attended by the Dalai Lama, Vaclav Havel, Chingiz Aimatov, Yehudi Menuhin and other guests. All of them signed and published the "Manifesto of Planetary Consciousness", a document that became the basis of the club's activities, which specifies the main goals set.
The manifesto consists of 12 articles, each of which is aimed at explaining the problems facing humanity and possible ways to solve them. For example, the basis of all the activities of the club is an idea that connects all the articles of the Manifesto with a red thread. It consists in the following: what was the past will remain the same, to solve the problems of the present and the future requires a different mindset, a different view. The processes in the world that we initiated are not similar to those that were started by our fathers and grandfathers, and the view of our children and grandchildren will depend on whether we will be able to abandon the old way of thinking, whether they will be able to take a different, new look at the current problems, thereby finding the necessary solution.
The Manifesto emphasizes that humanity is on the threshold of a new stage of social, spiritual and cultural evolution. Many problems: problems of socio-economic development, environmental problems, demographic problems, problems of energy and raw materials, cannot be overcome only through political and economic instruments. A new way of thinking is the main tool and a necessary condition for further development. To create such a way of thinking, the Budapest Club sets itself the task of encouraging creativity in all people, in all parts of the world. Creativity is not a genetic, but a cultural capital of a person. Today, achievements in the economic, social and technological environment are actually the creation of man.
The club sees its mission in encouraging and facilitating the evolution of planetary consciousness, which is a vital aspect of our sustainable material and cultural well-being and socio-economic development.[...].
There are branches of the Budapest Club in many countries, and since 2015 such a branch has started its work in Russia. Thus, within the framework of the IV International Congress "Globalistics-2015", held from October 26 to 30, 2015 at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, the founding meeting of the Budapest Club branch in the Russian Federation was held. [...]The importance of involving students in the work of the club was also emphasized, which is especially well combined with the profile of the Faculty of Global Processes of Moscow State University.
[...]Professor A.N. Chumakov was elected coordinator of the Russian branch of the Budapest Club, and a 3rd–year student (now a graduate student) was elected secretary Faculty of Global Processes of Moscow State University V.A. Goliney."
THE CLUB OF ROME
"In the USSR, the Association for the Promotion of the Roman Club was established in 1989, and after the collapse of the USSR it was reformed into the Russian Association for the Promotion of the Roman Club (the first president of the Association was Academician D.V. Gvishiani). It currently has 50 members under the chairmanship of Sergey Kamionsky. The Association is actively developing a youth direction, the purpose of which is to attract young people from leading Russian universities, carriers of different cultures and ideas interested in the implementation of the Club's mission to the Club's activities. The Russian Association actively uses international experience and research methods aimed at solving the problems of the Club of Rome. Every year it holds two meetings to discuss the most important conceptual and organizational issues.
