Donor with DFS Membership: Community profile page, access to exclusive membership content and entrée to events

To our pleasure the Dutch Future Society community has greatly expanded itself over the last two years. People are connecting both online and offline, through our meetings and communal activities, on the website, as well as on social media. The Dutch Future Society aims to facilitate this interaction to meet, learn and grow professionally. You can now also become a donor with Membership of the Dutch Future Community (DFC)!

Membership includes:

 access¹ to events organised by us and some of our partners

– a personal profile page on our community page to present and share your expertise

highlighting of profiles or special achievements of our members online and through our newsletter

 online access to exclusive membership content, such as in-depth (video)interviews with global experts, pre-conference materials and more. Check out our YouTube-channel to meet some of the experts that we interviewed to pick their brains

– the opportunity to submit blogs and articles for our website and newsletter

…and we are continuously adding more. Do you have an idea about how we could improve upon what we offer our community? Please let us know by sending an email to!

World Future Society

Please note that there are currently no financial ties between DFS and WFS. WFS membership offers you benefits for their events and membership materials, but does not directly support our work nor is it in any way linked to DFS Membership. We continue our good relations with WFS however, and joint opportunities or benefits may arise in the future.


As an open community and a non-profit organisation (Stichting), we strive to do as much as possible for as little as possible. Our donor fee with DFS Membership is therefore only €75,- for a full year, including access to our events (fulltime (PhD) students enjoy a 50% discount)². This fee enables us to actively engage our community online, e.g. moderate and improve the Community, share (video) content, and offline, e.g. organising conferences, meetings and more.

Profile Page

DFC-smallThe Profile Page allows you to present yourself to the community and other visitors. It offers several features such as  links to your blog or latest work, the option to show a video from YouTube or Vimeo, action photos and more. You can also share your expertise by interacting and engaging with DFS members. These pages will furthermore be a useful resource for organisations to find experts from all fields of foresight and trend research that characterise our community.

Sponsor & Organizational Memberships

Besides normal donor membership we also offer Sponsor Memberships and Organizational Memberships. More information about these opportunities is available here.

We are in the process of rolling out our members section. If you run into a problem or if you have a question or suggestion, please don’t hesitate to contact us at!

Please note: although the options to be filled out on the signup form are extensive, only those with a red asterisk are mandatory. You can fill out the rest of your profile later, but please consider doing so right away in order not to forget (we’d like to avoid empty profiles). Our thanks!
