2023 – 2025: Blackout risks. Responding to the imperative of prosilience

Article written by Christopher H. CORDEY, Swiss national, founder of Futuratinow, a consulting firm specialising in IDEAtion, strategic anticipation and training. Partner of Yonders.world.

Denial, illusion of security, feeling of powerlessness and unpreparedness seem to prevail in terms of preparing the population for the risk of a blackout on a European scale. Blackout is a frightening term, still somewhat taboo in certain chancelleries, whereas the American, Austrian and Swiss governments – among others[1] – have been mobilising their populations to prepare for it for years. Prosilience[2]  is becoming a national security issue.
