Format: Research Collaboration

The Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug in Arctic Russia is being strongly affected by climate change and globalization. The region requires strategies to safeguard human health, wellbeing, economic growth, and environmental sustainability in the face of uncertain future developments. Foresight Intelligence brought together scientists, industry representatives, policy makers, and local indigenous communities from the region to co-create comprehensive scenarios of Artic futures. As part of a strategic foresight process designed to synthesise a range of transdisciplinary knowledges, the stakeholder group jointly conceptualised innovative ideas for future planning which were robust to ongoing transformational processes in Arctic Russia.

Global Governance Futures
Format: Intercultural Dialogue

The young professionals of today will be the leaders addressing global governance challenges of tomorrow. Equipping these prospective leaders with the skills to think about complex futures is one of the main aims of the ongoing series of intercultural dialogues that Foresight Intelligence has been organising as part of the GGF programme for the last 10 years. The programme brings together a globally diverse group of up to 30 fellows for a series of four structured dialogue sessions over a two year period. Using strategic foresight instruments, each group is tasked with working together to come up with solutions for a potential future global governance challenge which could range from arms control to big data regulation. The participants not only expand their intercultural competencies and hone their complex problem-solving skills; they also become a community that endures well beyond the duration of the programme.

German Labor Market 2030
Format: Foresight Lab

Digitalization is expected to have wide-ranging effects on the German labour market. How can the diverse interests at stake in these future developments be assessed comprehensively? Working with representatives from unions, civil society organisations, start-ups and large digitalization corporations, Foresight Intelligence designed an open, dynamic process to map the many dimensions of a future digitalized German labour market. Over the course of three workshops, scenarios were developed which highlighted the strategic implications of both macro developments in the labour market structure, and micro level changes to specific occupations. The process not only produced a report comprehensively outlining the risks and opportunities of workplace digitalization in the German context, it also resulted in the establishment of lasting networks between participants within the emerging German digital economy.

Climateurope Festival 2018
Format: Interactive Conference

Climate change poses one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced. Communicating the significance of scientific data on climate change is a large part of this challenge. Bringing climate scientists together with representatives from climate-sensitive industries, Foresight Intelligence designed an innovative conference format to facilitate a user-centred innovation process. A range of stakeholders including policy planners, wine producers, reinsurance experts and renewable energy producers were given the chance to engage directly with the scientists who produce the climate data they depend so heavily upon. Both groups of participants gained something from this process: Climate scientists learnt how to increase the value of their outputs within the bounds of a streamlined business model, and end-users were able to suggest concrete ways in which to climate services could be made more user-friendly.
