Scanning the Horizon: 2021 membership
1st January 2021 - 31st December 2021
12:00 am - 11:55 pm
This collaborative platform helps CSOs prepare for disruption and benefit from change.
With members including leading ICSOs, national CSO umbrella organisations, and private sector companies, the platform address the need for collaborative trend analysis in the sector. Futurists, strategists, trend analysts and organisational learning and research specialists form a cross-sector community of experts and practitioners to share insights, explore key trends and develop relevant strategies. The platform also enables mutual learning and the pooling of resources.
Our plan for 2021 is to move to regular (bimonthly) sub-community exchange under two main themes:
- Complex and uncertain futures – this sub-community will meet to hear from each other and external speakers on relevant topics such as: interconnectedness of trends and COVID-19 complexity (continuation of 2020 work), building long-term and intergenerational thinking in organisations, etc.
- Equitable and inclusive futures – this sub-community will meet to hear from each other and external speakers on topics such as: decolonised and racially just futures, feminist futures, gender dimensions of global trends, etc.
As in 2020, there will be two opportunities for the whole Scanning community to come together and share and combine the best emerging outcomes from both thematic exchanges – once online from 15-17 June 2021 and during the first week of November 2021, potentially in-person. More details will be shared from January.
