Futureconsult has 15 years of experience with working for governments, profit and non-profit organizations. We mainly help organizations that struggle with the societal and organizational implications of rapid, technological developments. We also assisted thirty municipalities in creating a future vision.
The municipality of Veenendaal
Veenendaal wanted to envision what the municipality and community should look like in 2040, together with citizens, entrepreneurs, and societal organizations.
‘Vision on Tour’ was omnipresent in the municipality – from schools to the market and the library, and from the indoor playground to meetings with entrepreneurs. Futureconsult orchestrated ‘Vision on Tour’ and together with local counselors and local ambassadors of the project the team engaged in conversations. What should be maintained? What are the wishes for the future? The citizens of Veenendaal got the chance to shape their future.

Rijkswaterstaat’s strategic exploration team looks into opportunities and challenges that arise from rapid technological and societal changes.
A special Early Warning-team scans the horizon for early indicators of change. Rijkswaterstaat asked Futureconsult to carry out a quick scan to broaden and deepen the Early Warning-methodology.
Futureconsult organized an Early Warnings Festival in cooperation with Rijkswaterstaat, where 70 professionals shared their knowledge on horizon scanning. Participants tested complementary methods and techniques. This festival was the first national interdisciplinary early warnings conference in the Netherlands.
