The Venus Project, Inc is an organization that promotes Jacque Fresco's visions of the future with the goal to improve society by moving towards what they call resource-based economy and the design of sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural resource management and advanced automation, focusing on the benefits they claim it will bring to society. The organization was started by Jacque Fresco, Roxanne Meadows and Sam Laurie in 1995. It works alongside The Zeitgeist Movement, which functions as an activist network, allowing members to communicate and work on projects within the movement.
Future by Design, a film about the life and work of Jacque Fresco, was produced in 2006. The name of the organization originates from Venus, Florida, where its 21-acre research center is located, near Lake Okeechobee. Within the center are ten buildings, designed by Fresco, which showcase the architecture of the project.
