Our Work

The Futures Project (TFP) is an international non-profit aiming to change our perspectives on innovation, technology and the future. Building on the UN2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, we work toward a future where values and the real needs of people and planet drive social and technological innovation. We bring people together across borders and sectors to create shared visions for the future, and we facilitate the action and innovation that bring these visions to life. Our ultimate goal is to create a global community of future driven systems change-makers. Our flagship initiatives contribute to achieving this aim.
