On Thursday 12 April 2012 a group of carefully selected invitees were treated to breakfast and a presentation on the work of the ForesightForDevelopment (FFD) team.
Geci Karuri-Sebina, present chair of the SA Millennium Node, addressed the diverse group, ranging from public to private enterprises, on the importance of including foresight in today’s business. She also gave those present a quick walk-through of the FFD’s website, stressing the need for dialogue on important foresight issues.
ForesightForDevelopment.org aims to create and stimulate debate across professions. Not only is this a way of bringing people with different points of reference in contact with each other, but it allows for richer input when searching for solutions to challenges.
The breakfast group was also addressed by Leonard Martin from Mistra (Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection), one of the FFD’s important partners.
