shiftN has been invited to develop a seminar on futures methodologies for the newly established Land Use project team at Foresight. The seminar discussed a wide range of futures and systems techniques as a basis for designing strategic interventions to deal with future uncertainties.
Foresight’s mandate is to support UK policy makers with science-based assessments of cross-departmental, future challenges and opportunities. The unit is based within the Government Office for Science, which is part of the Department of Innovation, Universities and Skills.
The Land Use project will study how land is likely to be valued as a resource in the future and how competing pressures on land in the UK will affect the economy, environment and society.
