The Manchester Foresight Course 2014 has been successfully delivered.
The course ran from 30th June to 4th July with 11 speakers and 15 participants from Europe, Asia and Latin America.
The world continues to experience great uncertainty about the unfolding economic crisis and it’s wider aftershocks. Many countries, industries and public services face uncertain and challenging futures where the quest for opportunities is increasingly competitive. Economic discontent has combined with existing political stresses to catch many institutions – and countries – wrong-footed. Meanwhile, globalisation, demographic, environmental and technological trends are reshaping the rules of the game. This intensifies the need for reflection upon all sorts of assumptions, plans and strategies for the long-term future.
