By expanding and integrating the knowledge society and the project-oriented society, the a uthors propose the establishment of a holistic project-knowledge society that sets the framework for overcoming global strategic crises, thereby ensuring the long--term survival of humankind. The article concludes with a diagram of the process of overcoming global strategic crises through a holistic project-knowledge society
