#Sustainable Futures Lab


Climate change impacts, disruptive new technologies, and the changing nature of work are just some of the changes profoundly reshaping the landscape for business and sustainability. In the face of such rapid and complex change, futures thinking offers a powerful tool to challenge current assumptions, engage with uncertainty, and create more resilient strategies.

This event will explore some of the most significant changes and introduce participants to futures thinking techniques. We will explore how strategic foresight methodologies such as scenario planning can help companies engage with uncertain futures and develop more strategic and sustainable responses.

  • Jacob Park, Director, Sustainable Futures Lab, BSR
