FORESIGHT ACTION NETWORK

Shaping Tomorrow sponsors the Foresight Action Network. Please read below to find out more.

FORESIGHT ACTION NETWORK

A Cross-sectoral  Strategic Futures Network

What is it?

The Foresight Action Network (FAN Club 2.0 for short) is a group of people from all sectors – public, private, academic, not for profit – with an interest in strategic futures.  They meet over lunch for informal workshop and discussion events every 2-3 months in London. The group emerged from a network originally funded by the Government Office for Science, now it is privately run with sponsorship from Shaping Tomorrow ;  those in the public sector attend free, others pay a fee of £42 (academic/NFP) or £78 (private sector). More details and reports from previous events can be found online (free to register):
