Foresight activities and work on the future
Our operating environment is changing fast. Future challenges will be multidimensional and interdependent. We live in a world in which decision-making requires a broad understanding of complex wholes. Foresight activities, which sketch out future development paths, represent an attempt to satisfy the need for such knowledge.
‘Towards the next hundred years’ events
The ‘Towards the next hundred years’ (Kohti seuraavaa sataa) events are part of the Government’s joint foresight activities. The results of these proceedings are utilised in the Government report on the future, in the foresight activities of the Government and the ministries, and in the formulation of EU policy.
