IFTF + You
IFTF works closely with corporations, government agencies, foundations, and non-profit organizations around the world to create custom foresight and immersive experiences that can turn that foresight into action. Here are just some of the possibilities:
Custom Views of the Future
IFTF will work with your organization to design a custom research plan for your unique window on the future. We can set up a custom signals database, design scenarios and create immersive videos that bring your strategic choices to life, and develop custom forecasts and custom roadmaps based on our frameworks or yours.
For over 45 years, IFTF has pioneered workshop processes that develop foresight as input to strategy. We can engage your team, your organizational leaders, or your community stewards in thoughtful, exciting, and immersive experiences, using artifacts from the future, immersive videos, and learning journeys to explore leading edge innovation. We can even share our toolkit to train you to run your own foresight workshops.
In a hyper-connected world, IFTF can help you engage people around the world in making the future. We work with a network of global research partners that we can engage for diverse perspectives and on-the-ground research around the world. We can also help you run collaborative forecasting games, using our Foresight Engine platform or design a forecasting platform or serious game to meet your own needs.
Even if you’re not a member of one of our programs or a sponsor of a project, you can work with IFTF in lots of ways. Follow our calendar of public events (such as +Tech and the Aging Forward Series) and join us for the conversation and insights. Suggest a public foresight collaboration that could make a difference in your community.

IFTF honors the memory of its former president, Roy Amara, with a fund for projects designed to extend our practice of participatory foresight, bringing our tools and methodologies to all kinds of communities. To date, the fund has supported the BodyShock competition for ideas to improve global health over the next 3-10 years by transforming our bodies and lifestyles; the California Dreams competition for best ideas for the future of California over the next 3-10 years; and two Youth Futures pilots in collaboration with East Palo Alto Charter School/Collective Roots and the Hoopa Reservations Elementary School.
