The World Futures Studies Federation (WFSF) is an organisation of futurists active in academic institutions, governments, non-profit and private organisations. The world wide organisation exists since 1973. It was founded to provide a connection between forward looking experts and academics active on both sides of the iron curtain. Today the federation builds bridges between professionals from the Northern and Southern hemispheres, from Western and Eastern cultures, from democratic as well as non-democratic states.

In the WFSF’s LEALA project Maono is one of three pilots for the use of blended learning strategies for futures education in a global context. The project ensures reading and production materials for workshops, transportation for participants and provides connectivity and online learning for the participants in Lubumbashi and Brussels.
