The Government’s common drivers for change
The drivers of change in the global environment give decision-makers and citizens an outlook into key changes and uncertainties in time to come. They are also groundwork for the future reviews being drawn up by the ministries and to be published in summer 2018.
Futures work does not involve predicting what will happen in the future; instead, it serves to help prepare for different paths of change and to examine present-day decisions with a critical eye in the light of these potential changes. To be successful, policies in Finland must be able to incorporate in these questions both influence and adjustment.
The drivers for change cards, which were created by the ministries jointly, were published in October 2017.
