The world is going through rapid change. The ongoing transformation of the global economy, the fast pace of technological development, and changes in the everyday lives of common people are setting demands for Finnish society to renew itself. The significance of anticipating future trends and patterns is constantly increasing.
The Foresight.fi website provides information and discussion on trends that affect Finnish society. Its aim is to be an open meeting place for foresight information and interested discussants. Foresight.fi equally welcomes experts, decision-makers and all citizens interested in futures.
Foresight.fi is the website of the National Foresight Network, a network of Finnish organizations that conduct regular foresight work. The aim of the National Foresight Network is to raise awareness of Finland’s new challenges and opportunities so they can be discussed, studied, and considered in decision-making. The activities of the National Foresight Network are coordinated by Sitra, The Finnish Innovation Fund.
Foresight.fi was launched in December 2008 and redesigned in summer 2009 and spring 2011. The main language of the website is Finnish, but comments in English and Swedish are also welcome.
