Cross-modal validation is of extreme importance. If anticipation were only a tempting theoretic perspective, chances are that it will not continue to attract researchers or justify funding (private or public). But this is clearly not the case. The major crises of the last ten years (financial, ecological, social, and even moral) illustrate the urgent need for an anticipatory perspective. We cannot afford to ignore the questions pertinent to sustainability – a major global challenge. So far, the possibility of this session has triggered the interest of leading scholars in economics, energy research, oceanography, engineering, and behavioral sciences.
