Strategic Foresight Workshop, United Edge


Foresight is now one of the most important leadership skills of the 21st century. But humanitarians, development workers, and social and environmental justice leaders at the forefront of change need to be better equipped to face the challenges of this vulnerable, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world to steer their organizations and programs into the future. For anyone working in strategy, leadership, organisational change and transformation, efficiency and effectiveness, impact, policy development, programme design, funding, and communications, this workshop delivers practical tools to use on-the-job that are relevant for every level of staff or sectoral focus.

Futures literacy is essential for identifying challenges, solutions, and trends in our rapidly changing sector. Cultivating these tangible leadership skills promotes critical thinking and shifts a team’s focus from basic delivery to big-picture strategy. In a workshop setting, you will learn some of the most important and practical tools to analyse and anticipate the future – from project to sector levels – that help leaders to level up to ensure that we’re not simply reacting to the trends that come at us but rather creating the possibilities for a truly justice based future.

We will hear from some of the foremost futurists in the world and build lasting connections with a global cohort of humanitarians, development workers, and social and environmental justice leaders. It will shift your mindset from reactive to innovative action, from linear to multi-potential outcomes, from conventional to emergent thinking, and from present-focused to a truly intergenerational take on justice.

Please join us, especially if you don’t have this essential skill set in your organisation, team, project, or personal CV!

If there are any inclusion needs or concerns, please also let us know. As a social enterprise, we also have some financial assistance available for individuals and organisations who cannot afford to pay the full fees – particularly those from the majority world/global south, women, black and indigenous people, those from ethnic minorities, LGBTQIA+ people, young people, disabled people, refugees, and grassroots activists.

This is a course that every humanitarian, development, social change, or environmental justice worker should attend.
