SCAS Hosts the Global Foresight Project

This week, SCAS was the venue for a meeting within the research project “Global Foresight: Antici-
patory Governance and the Making of Geo-cultural Scenarios”. SCAS Principal Christina Garsten,
who is the principal investigator of the project, hosted co-researchers Adrienne Sörbom, Mark Maguire,
Mikkel Flyverbom and Ulrik Jennische for a three-day workshop on a joint book.

The Global Foresight project investigates how global foresight organizations attempt to anticipate the
future, how scenario models are produced, and what they tell us about proposed solutions for tackling
urgent global challenges. It is funded by a grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, through the 2015
jubilee call for proposals on New Horizons for Humanities and Social Sciences (Nya utsikter för HumSam).
The project is based at the Collegium since the late spring of 2023.
