Aftershocks and Opportunities – Futurists Envision our Post-Pandemic Future
Call for Chapters – Post Pandemic Future
What are the possibilities for the future in a post-pandemic world?
While the world grapples with the current unfolding crisis, as futurists we know how important it is to also be thinking about the next horizon and beyond. This can help ensure that the decisions we make today don’t lay the foundation for a new set of problems over the horizon. Equally, understanding the types of future that might emerge post-crisis can help us plan and prepare for those possibilities as we reshape our strategies today. Finally, such future insights might help us spot, train for, and adapt to the new opportunities that could arise as a post-pandemic world unfolds.

Next Generation Foresight Practitioners Awards - Recognising the next generations' endeavours in shaping the future.
When we look at the world, we see new foresight practitioners enabling their communities to collectively imagine and create their own futures. They are diverse voices that are effectively democratising the futures field.
The NGFP awards recognise those helping to shape the future and improve lives through innovative strategic foresight. They aim to showcase stories of accelerating and scaling change in their communities towards a positive future. Through the awards we are seeking to identify change that is coming from a new generation — millennials, with new aspirations and values — from new geographies, with a growing foresight practice in Africa and Asia, and from second and third career practitioners entering the field from other domains, with fresh ideas and approaches.
