My point of view is that long range planning should exist, even though quite a few people do not want to follow it. These plans are rolling-forward plans and not fixed from
the beginning. The idea is that we cannot predict, but we should try. There should be many iterations of this as plans are successively developed and improved - this is a
Japanese methodology of continuous improvement. That is why there is a 1,000 million year plan. You are expected to modify it!
This website relates to the draft of the 1bn
Earth year (1bnE) rolling forward plan. This section relates to the plan for the next two years.
