Transformative change only happens when everyone
—people, groups, and leaders—works together. 

Supporting transformation

Our work builds on research and practice using foresight to drive systems and sector transformation in more than 50 countries. This has led to a deep understanding of futures, people and systems and how to help systems unlock to create transformative futures.

We integrate these approaches to provide insights, build capability and support change for people in countries, organisations and communities.

Leading thinking

Building future-facing, future-ready organisations and institutions is hard.

As experts in the use of foresight in government and governance we work to help people:

  • Harness foresight for change
  • Build their foresight ecosystem and embed foresight capability
  • Conducting local and national listening exercises harnessing
    participatory foresight
  • Drive innovation in sectors and systems
  • Reimagine effective democratic practice

We do this collaboratively with our globally diverse community, made of friends and collaborators formed across the futures and foresight space where new perspectives, challenges and insights are shared.
