IFTF Foresight Practitioner Meet-ups
IFTF Practitioner Meet-Ups are hour-long open conversations exclusively for those who have attended an IFTF Foresight Essentials training. The goal of the online alumni meetings is to provide a platform to connect, share knowledge, and learn from one another, and to support a more robust, diverse community of foresight practitioners. Few things are more inspiring than hearing concrete stories about how we are all refining our foresight practices. Contact Ayça Güralp if you have questions.
The IFTF Foresight Essentials Newsletter is a monthly email for sharing tools, tips, and inspiration. Written for those who are practicing futures thinking, the newsletter unpacks tools and methods to fortify your practice, highlight upcoming events that will widen your network and perspective, and share stories that will spark ideas and deepen your learning.
