Why Community and Education matter for Future Trend Forecasters

Community Globe

The Trend Atelier Community and School exists because there’s a gap between learning structured future foresight methodologies and implementing them with visionary thinking.

There is also a deep need to harness future trend forecasting for the greater good.

From our courses to our community space, the Trend Atelier supports trend forecasters and creatives by fostering kinship, collaboration, professional development, as well as access to ground breaking future insights.

Trend Atelier Community group

The word trend is overused and can have a negative connotation BUT it is an important word representing shifts in behaviour which when brought together, point to changes impacting not only products, but society and culture.

The time is now to face the future intelligently. Through our understanding of what affects the human project and macro trends for the creative industry, we can all implement big picture strategies for what we call Purpose driven forecasting.

The Community accepts new members only once a year, so be sure to join the waiting list so you don’t miss out.

Now more than ever there is an ethical responsibility we have to question how things are made and conceptualized for their long term life for generations ahead.

In their own words

Our best ambassadors are the students who have benefited both professionally and personally from our courses and community.
