Alumni

Since our first public program in 2015, The Futures School is proud to have launched the foresight careers of over 1,000 professionals across the globe. As we are fond of saying, “foresight is a team sport,” and there is no better team than the worldwide community of futurists who make up our TFS alumni.

Collaborate on Futures Space

We believe that democratizing the future depends on diverse thinking and co-creation. Strategic Foresight is most successful when practiced as a team, with each individual contributing their perspective to the collective vision. Futures are stronger when they represent a wide spectrum of human experience, and they are more effectively actioned against through a cross-siloed network. 

The internet allows for the most advanced and efficient cross-pollination of ideas and knowledge. The pandemic proved to us that we can accomplish great things through digital interactions. A well-designed digital platform empowered by intersectional diversity might be the most important technology for manifesting the future
