We developed the concept of ‘foresight by design’, which uses innovative design tools and techniques to bring new ideas to life and engage clients and stakeholders in meaningful conversations about change.

Arup Foresight has developed a range of world-class tools and platforms to support creative thinking, foresight, strategy and innovation programmes. They range from our global Drivers of Change programme to our online Inspire insights database.
