The Department of Defense today launched "America's Future Forum," a new debate forum posted on the National Security Study Group's Internet web site at www.nssg.gov.

The forum will provide the public an opportunity to contribute their ideas on what the United States will look like in 2025. The America's Future Forum solicits views on the range of factors that will shape the country's future, including demographics, economics, civic culture, and issues of national identity.

"America's Future Forum" is the newest of the web site's interactive features. Other discussion topics up for debate on the web site include the nature of national security in the next century, the world in 2025, and the future of technology.

The study group is also known as the Hart-Rudman Commission after its co-chairmen, former Senators Gary Hart and Warren Rudman. The group is tasked with developing a national security strategy for the 21st Century.

The NSSG web site is unique in that this is the first time a government-sponsored study has maintained a permanent direct connection with the American public during its drafting process.

For more information, contact Lt. Cmdr. Anthony Cooper at (703) 697-3189.
