Foresight NEXT

Exceptional Professional Development
for Corporate Sustainable Impact

Created in collaboration with the foremost corporate sustainability executives, Foresight NEXT provides corporate influencers with the relevant methodologies and perspectives to better engage complex impending challenges. NEXT presents a hands-on, forward-looking platform that delivers a systems-wide window on the diverse sustainability practices and strategies of leading companies.

Limited to a small, select cohort of peers, the highly interactive program includes six daylong site visits to trailblazing corporations, government agencies and small businesses. These are complemented by six evening seminars focused on a range of relevant topics investigated through readings, lectures and discussions.

Foresight NEXT is designed for corporate professionals motivated to gain comprehension of sustainability issues across business and the economy. These professionals are looking to align business values with environmental and social value, while acquiring tools and skills necessary to solve the pressing problems of sustainability and resiliency. Participants at various stages of their careers will leave the experience empowered with the understanding and perspective necessary to more effectively integrate strategies and implement initiatives in their particular sector.
