Foundations in Natural Foresight® – Mexico City

March 19-21, 2024 9 am – 5 pm


Collaborate alongside professional futurists and thought leaders applying foresight tools to design the future of our global cities.

Participate in an interactive think tank that empowers you with the critical skills of Strategic Foresight and Futures Thinking for a new era of complexity and change.

TFSX and Change Consulting partner do deliver the world-renowned Foundations in Natural Foresight® think tank program in Mexico City focused on the future of designing our cities!

Cities are the foundation of civilization and, therefore, economies. As societies morph and advance in terms of exponential technology, shifting enterprise, changing government and business models, multiple identities in both physical and digital spaces, and transformative innovations across industries, we must challenge the framing and purpose of cities and communities as we know them today.

Join us in Mexico City to build multi-faceted maps that address how our cities will handle rising wicked problems and aspire to serve as life-giving, holistic, and making the world a better place.
