More and more frequently, leaders in the public and private sectors and in civil society are involved in strategising and planning on humanitarian and sustainable development issues observe that what we have been doing will not change the trajectory of where we are heading.
Incitare presents an opportunity to build on the skills and experience gained at a highly regarded “Futures” workshops held in Geneva in 2015 and 2016. The Futures Thinking, Anticipatory Leadership, Strategic Foresight create spaces for fresh thinking about possible, plausible and probable futures. Far from fanciful, this approach creates space for collective intelligence and allows the re-framing of expectations, even optimism, that human agency is able to shift the narrative and in doing so, accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Working across constituencies, sectors and organisations to explore new models for social and economic development consolidating and extending known promising practices and identifying research gaps, the futures approach enables the needed paradigm shifts and builds authentic multi-stakeholder engagement and link topics previously examined in silos but inextricably linked: demographics, education and learning, work and livelihoods, migration, peace, and security.
