A mix of Signals of change submitted by users around the world and longer-form Insights - explorations of the emerging systemic change we are seeing, from futurists, academics, business leaders, sustainability experts, that help with sensemaking - literally: making sense of the world.
What is a Signal of Change?
A signal of change is like a seed of a possible future. It can be any development, idea or innovation that points to a future possibility different to today’s norm. We are especially interested in signals that point to the possibility of significant systemic change, or those that illuminate an unexpected aspect of an ongoing change. Not all signals do end up coming to fruition, because the future is inherently uncertain. Signals help us to think in terms of multiple possible futures, to think more widely and creatively about the future and to anticipate unintended consequences.
