IFTF Ten-Year Forecast: A Collective Journey
For over 50 years, Institute for the Future has worked from the belief that the future is in no way inevitable, but is shaped by the choices we make and the possibilities we imagine. The Ten-Year Forecast is a thought-provoking gathering on the future of society, economy, work, organizations, and technology. It represents a collective journey—alongside fellow foresight practitioners, leaders, strategists, designers, artists, and decision makers—to take a step back from the noise and pressures of today and immerse yourselves in the transformative possibilities of the decade ahead.

Highlights from Past Ten-Year Forecasts
In 1968, IFTF's founders wrote:
"We live in a period of rapid and vast change. As change quickens in tempo and widens in sweep, the risks and opportunities that confront us call increasingly for expanded efforts to lead the course of events, rather than be led by them. An awareness of the future has thus become more important to the present than ever before."
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, IFTF helps companies, foundations, governments, communities, and individuals think creatively and pragmatically about the future. We achieve this by developing tools and methodologies that guide and accelerate the transformation of long-term foresight into practical, near-term insight.
