Forecasting the Future — Signals of Change and Food as Climate Action

Time: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Location: TBD


The CBEY Skills for Sustainable Innovation Workshop series welcomes Max Elder, Research Director for the Food Futures Lab at the Institute for the Future, for a hands-on workshop on futures thinking and forecasting methodologies.

This workshop will teach signals-based forecasting (a particular foresight methodology) and show how it can be applied to your work, your studies, and your approach to navigating uncertainty. Signals-based forecasting is a valuable skill set for entrepreneurs. It helps anyone trying to start a business, develop new products and services, or understand a market by providing a qualitative approach to explore the broadest range of possibilities or innovations that might impact their industry. (For an introduction to IFTF’s use of signals as a building block for larger forecasts, watch the first fifteen minutes of this talk by IFTF Research Director Sarah Smith.)
