How Can We Plan For an Uncertain Future?

A Conversation with Johannes Gabriel

May 2018


Global Futures is a podcast about global politics and how rising powers like China and India are changing it. We discuss foreign policy, economics, war and peace, and how the world is changing with experts from across the world.

What are the upcoming global challenges that demand our consideration in order to avoid surprises, mitigate risks, and make use of the opportunities they offer? In search of the answers, the 27 fellows of the Global Governance Futures 2030 program will meet over the course of 2018 and 2019 in four dialogue sessions to look ahead 10 years and think of ways to better address global challenges. To do so, the fellows will use a variety of strategic foresight instruments, including scenario planning and risk assessment.

In this episode of the Global Futures podcast Joel Sandhu from the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) meets Johannes Gabriel, founder and director of Foresight Intelligence and GPPi non-resident fellow , to discuss scenario-planning and how it is used in the context of GGF program and elsewhere.
