The founding conference which created the Federation was held in Paris, France, 26 May 1973. The first General Assembly of the Federation was convened in Paris with UNESCO assistance in March 1974.

Since that time, the WFSF has held over 20 conferences in over a dozen countries, reflecting the flexibility, strength, diversity and resilience of the organisation, its members, and the field which it supports.

The World Futures Studies Federation XXth World Conference, "Transitions: Encouraging Emerging Worlds" was held June 30-July 3, 2008 in Trollhätten, Sweden.

The work continues with the preparation of the XXIst World Conference for 2011. The institutional members who would wish to host the next conference are kindly asked to follow this process:
