The Venus Project organization was incorporated by Jacque Fresco. It advocates what it calls a resource-based economy. This idea has versions of sustainable development, energy efficiency, natural resource management, and advanced automation in a global socioeconomic system based on social cooperation and scientific methodology.

The Venus Project was founded in 1995 as a for-profit corporation by Fresco and Roxanne Meadows in Venus, Florida.[1]

A separate, nonprofit organization started by Fresco and his business partner Roxanne Meadows is Future By Design, founded in 2003.[2]

Fresco lectures his ideas and gives tours of the Venus Project location.[3]

The documentary-style films Zeitgeist: Addendum[4] and Zeitgeist: Moving Forward focus on ideas from the Venus Project though the two groups split from each other as far as supporting one another after the movies mentioned were made.[5]
