Tools for Hope: APF London Professional Development Seminar

September 28, 2017 13:02

An all day workshop on using futures methods to create change

Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will, said the Italian radical Gramsci in a famous phrase. It is easy to overdose on the pessimism as we look at the overlapping crises that threaten to engulf us. But if we are going to create real change—enough to overcome these crises—we will need tools that give people back their sense of agency.

Hence, Tools for Hope. Futures tools that help people believe that change is possible and that they can make a difference.


A futures-based professional development event that provides practical opportunities to learn how to apply futures methods to build positive and sustainable change in organisations and communities.


Speakers include Wendy Schultz on visioning, Bill Sharpe on Three Horizons, Tricia Lustig on Appreciative Inquiry, and Tanja Hiche on the Good Anthropocene. Take a look at the brochure for all speakers and their sessions, as well as for the schedule of the day.


In the hea of London’s Bloomsbury district, at Mary Ward House, 7 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9SN
