Due to the recent passing of futurologist James Martin (1933-2013),

Futurologist Dr. James Martin (1933-2013), (wikimedia commons: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Welcome)

this post is devoted to remembrance of this humanitarian, philanthropist, bestselling author, and passionate advocate for foresight across disciplines. Dr. Martin was a man of extraordinary intellect, wide range of interests and boundless energy. Oxford‘s statement on the death of Dr. James Martin was: “We have lost a towering intellect, guiding visionary and a wonderful close friend”. Professor Andrew Hamilton, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, said: “James Martin was a true visionary whose exceptional generosity established the Oxford Martin School, allowing researchers from across the disciplines to work together on the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing humanity. His impact will be felt for generations to come, as through the School he has enabled researchers to address the biggest questions of the 21st century.”

In his memory, I am listing the 17  Great Challenges of the Twenty-First Century by the Late James Martin, below (also in more details at http://www.wfs.org/blogs/futurist-magazine/17-great-challenges-twenty-first-century-late-james-martin): Here is also a video recorded just few months before Dr. Martin’s passing:
