In the FOCUS project we look at the future of the social field using the foresight methodology and tools.
What will the future look like?
The human ability to prospect and plan for the future is what makes us different from other species and gives us wisdom compared to them.
Modern psychologists and neuroscience experts have managed to show that a skill of the human brain is its ability to travel through time. Our brain can look towards the future, consciously or unconsciously, and this allows us to learn not only from our own experiences, but also from others.
Foresight is the discipline that:
Helps us understand where the world is going.
Catalyzes thinking into strategic alternatives.
Helps us stay relevant to tomorrow's world!
Understand the relevant patterns of the PAST
Scan and collect the relevant insights from PRESENT
Create visions to describe the FUTURE
Within the FOCUS project, the foresight stage and consultation sessions with professionals in the field are led by Diana Stafie, foresight strategist and founder of Future Station. Diana facilitates strategic planning processes for organizations, co-creates future related scenarios and contributes to the improvement of teams to face future realities.
Future Station is a foresight and strategic consulting agency that helps organizations understand change, identify new trends, drive innovation and prepare for the future.
