"Every question has multiple responses.
Uncertainty calls for diverse guidelines.
From the present looking to the future ”.
from contemporary society to a new generation. "
The Prospective Proposal is drawn up in an unusually unstable and changing world, where static roles are in danger of leaving the players off stage. Certain practices and methodology must be followed. Contemporary issues are analyzed as a result of the proposals from the past, which must come first to help us dictate the choice of guidelines for "our possible future."
There are two frameworks:
In the first, common think tank methodology is applied, ie, a subject of study, hypothesis, other views, debate, gathering opinions and ideas, and writing the "story."
In the second, methodology is based on forecasting, simulation and updating the proposal.
- The Proposal consists of two parts: a general section under the heading "the Basque Role," which constitutes the corpus of the proposal, and other specific sectorial issues identified by areas of work and appearing in their respective "thematic annexes."
Special mention should be made of the methodology of simulation and update for the Proposal based on mathematical modelling, by identifying key parameters and their continued application.
Prospective Proposals function on a biennial basis, maturing over time and yielding study results.
- Symposium. Every other year, the General Symposium of the Foundation is held, where the Prospective Proposal is presented. This is the final debate, during which motions can be raised and included in the final proposal as an annex.
- Meetings. Two annual events for meetings of different groups are held. Following a criterion of efficiency and economy of management, the Foundation schedules all meetings in the months of March and September..
