WHO WE ARE
The Foresight Fundamentals programme was developed by Professor Peter Bishop, who led the University of Houston master's in Foresight program for 30 years. He also wrote Teaching About the Future with his colleague Dr Andy Hines.
Professor Bishop is now the Executive Director of the Teach the Future, a global movement that promotes futures literacy for students and educators.
What They’re Saying
Excellent training that will allow participants to leverage rather than be overwhelmed by the future!
In these times of major disruption and exponential change, finding ways to reflect on, describe and prepare for diverse potential futures is more important than ever. This course provides a great introduction to the Foresight methodology, with a good balance of instruction and hands-on practice exercises. A good opportunity to step up and out of "today" thinking.
Above all, the workshop got me to see a glimpse of the future, the important aspect of foresight, NOT trying to predict it which is impossible, and how to go about it in a structured manner. Thank you.
