Creatives and forecasters seek ways
of visioning the future but
don't have the methods and mindsets.
We created a framework that elevates
your foresight work and mission
to author a preferable future.
World Building is our overarching framework* with 4 key pillars essential to empower and equip future forecasters and creatives who want to elevate their skills and mission.
Each pillar defines the regenerative foresight journey we deliver for our community members:
- Mission Vision
- Methods Principles
- Inside Out Sustainability
- Expression Influence
MISSION VISION - Clarify your Mission. This is your compass for personal, professional development, and lays the Vision for the future.
METHODS PRINCIPLES: Learn the tools and frameworks to apply regenerative and impactful future foresight
INSIDE OUT SUSTAINABILITY: Sustainability starts with how you treat yourself. Connect with your values and redefine your productivity
In a Learning Atelier, you can immerse yourself at your own pace and embed a pillar of the World Building Framework into your foresight practice. We host a mix of live events, pre-recorded lessons, collective inspiration spaces, tools and resources to ensure you grow.
A Futuring journey is a manageable step-by-step guide designed to help you reach a specific goal. For example: How to present a future forecast, How to organise your research, Regenerative metrics for evaluating trends, Ways of prototyping a future scenario or How to manage your time.
On our platform accessible both on desktop and phone, learn from the signals of change shared by our creative and futuring community members in our collective intelligence space. This is a feed of diverse insights inspired by:
- Shifting cultural paradigms
- Pioneering innovations
- Disruptive ideas and projects
- Macro forces impacting trends on a global and local level
This is where we ideate on solutions and visionary insights around specific themes that matter to our community. Co-creation is a direct product of our futuring culture.
Live discussions, future forecast presentations and asynchronous discussions in our community feed provide a grasp of the global challenges and solutions for our societies and creative industries.
Our future trend presentations prioritise on thought provoking ideas and interactivity. We ask the questions: how might we adapt? What are the wild cards and possible futures ahead?
On our platform, we have all the social networking features you need to make meaningful connections. This includes direct messaging, group chat and forums to share future foresight ideas, ask for feedback on your research and projects. We are your first point of call to lean on.
Our community members host their own events and interest groups. The event programming reflects our collective passion for innovation, discussion, regenerative futures and our members' evolving interests.
Hi, Geraldine Wharry here. I am a futurist, educator and futures designer, founder of Trend Atelier.
I help forecasters and creatives reach their full potential and mission to drive change. After years of climate change and sustainability advocacy whilst advising organisations in the creative industry, I've learnt I'm obsessed with community.
Through hundreds of conversations, I've also learnt forecasters and futuring creatives need a full spectrum of support: from practical tools to accomplish complex tasks to self care rituals that breed creativity, from asking for what you're worth to fulfilling your sense of purpose.
As humans, we grow through shared actualisation and exchange much more than a self paced course, or one workshop, as helpful as they can be.
Regenerative Future foresight, as the most significant approach to futures tackling the greatest challenges of our time, requires inspiration, creativity, study, experimentation, time and support.
The best way to do this is by learning and succeeding together.
Our culture of creating a safe space
We have created a culture of feeling welcomed and supported.
Here's a peek at the values and guidelines we take to heart.
"Having people who are like minded I come away from every call feeling more passionate, more emboldened and with a deeper understanding of the job we are doing. It’s a job that is all encompassing it takes so much from you, your creativity, your strategic mind."

"The resources and knowledge that are available, we are able to explore so many things, which is very enriching. I have been inspired. I feel the Trend Atelier is a safe space for me. We can always find support. We are not judged for exploring disruptive ways of approaching the industry."

"I've really enjoyed being in the community because there's not just designers, there are trend forecasters, teachers, different creatives. We're sharing our thoughts AND I love hearing the different perspectives. It gives me an opportunity to challenge and question myself."
Powered by collective intelligence, regenerative principles, tools and resources.

"The community is something that has really helped me open a pathway that I didn't necessarily think would be there and has exposed me to new possibilities for my own future. That has been an incredible gift, to be a part of a community of strong people who put themselves out there."
