About 2/2: … Over the past 15 years, Forum for the Future has: 

  • changed the debate about sustainable business by highlighting the opportunities it offers, and been instrumental in altering the way leading companies operate – from Aviva to Unilever;
  • trained thousands of leaders, across society, through our master classes and Masters Programme, so they are knowledgeable about sustainable development and equipped to face the global challenges like climate change and shortages of vital resources;

We believe that by understanding the dynamics of these systems, bringing together organisations playing key roles, and intervening at strategic tipping points, we’ve got a much better chance of transforming them so they function in a new and more sustainable way.

We share the lessons from our work widely so that many others all over the world can become more sustainable. We seek to inspire them – and the wider public – with our vision of a green, fair and prosperous world …  (full text about Forum for the Future.org).
