ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Emerging Fellows Program is designed to recognize emerging futurists and mentor them to develop their Foresight capabilities. Over the two-year process, they will learn about foresight tools, develop their writing competencies on Futures issues, contribute to projects within the field, grow their networks of practitioners, and mentor successive cohorts to make the program sustainable over time. From April 2021, Patricia Lustig is the program director.

During the program, they will be writing about their selected topics and their work. The essays of the Emerging Fellows will be posted on the APF blog and collated into e-publication forms at the end of each program.

Applications are now open for the programme and will close on October 30, 2023.

I’ve mostly been working on the future of eating and food packaging technologies, but I prefer the systems thinking side of foresight.

My interests are in living systems and participatory anticipation as lenses in exploring hope. Particularly across restorative governance and leadership, in impact effectiveness and in organic ecosystems of resilience and innovation.

Along with my cohort fellows, I am also exploring music and satire!
