In 1989 John Petersen founded The Arlington Institute (TAI), a non-profit, future-oriented research institute, the purpose of which was to work with the leadership of the national security community to change the idea of “national security” from death and destruction to a broader understanding of security that included, environmental degradation, climate change, social value shifts, science and technology breakthroughs, and other global issues that clearly contributed to our security. The “think tank” now serves as a global agent for change focusing on facilitating the transition to a new world. It does that by developing new concepts, processes and tools for anticipating potential futures and translating that knowledge into better present-day decisions.
