Is the future scary, or full of possibility?

Sign up for Rebecca Ryan's Futurist Camp to find out.

Yes. It Just Depends How You Approach It.

Futurist Camp, a training from Rebecca Ryan, Resident Futurist at the Alliance for Innovation, helps you learn how to build a bright future for your community, instead of a scary one. Rebecca teaches Campers the art of strategic foresight. Foresight takes a long look into the future and asks, “What’s our future likely to be and what do we need to do today to be ready for it?”. It plans towards the future, not the past. Most importantly, foresight helps cities think more innovatively and discover opportunities for our future.

How does your city need to change to be relevant to the future? Bring your hairiest city issue and work it out at camp.

Sign up for one of two sessions. These are the only Futurist Camps that will be offered this year- don’t miss this opportunity!
