A Humanitarian Foresight Anthology

The first edition of this anthology captures experiences of foresight work within the humanitarian sector originated from non-traditional centres of power and decision making. The collection encourages humanitarian stakeholders to re-think systems of power, capacity building, funding, risk, complexity, inclusion, and urbanism, while cementing the value of 'futuring' as a tool for innovation, change, and imagination.

We believe that storytelling can be used as a tool to make the case for foresight within the humanitarian space and that these stories represent voices that often remain unheard.

Impact

Through the first edition of the anthology, our aim is to:

  1. Identify the different values of collaborative futures thinking within the humanitarian sector.
  2. Nudge humanitarian stakeholders and leaders to incorporate the foresight practice within their work.
  3. Encourage more foresight practitioners to reflect on, document, and tell the story of their work.

Call to action

  • If you are a foresight practitioner and have a story to tell,
  • If you are within the humanitarian sector, and wish to explore foresight practice for your work,
