For more than five decades IFTF has been identifying and investigating global urgent futures issues before they become critical public problems. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, mission-driven research and educational organization, IFTF maintains independence in conducting research and producing content that serves the public interest. 

Therefore, we are committed to making our work publicly available in service of our mission to help people become future-ready, and our vision for a world that harnesses systematic futures thinking to create more equitable, sustainable societies.
