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.

Lead the new era of future foresight


Everyone has ‘the future of’ at the tip of their tongue.

The field of future foresight is at the center of influencing culture, design, media, marketing, policy, innovation all the way to services. Learning future forecasting methods and principles has never been so vital, given the complexity of our world.

But all too often, futuring creatives and foresight professionals feel a lack of access to cutting edge insights, support and resources that empower your work and vision for a sustainable world. How we influence society's obsession with the new also creates ethical dissonance. And how all consuming our work is can lead to frustration, even overwhelm.

Trend Atelier provides a holistic framework that ushers in a new era of regenerative approaches and support systems for future foresight professionals and creatives.  Our community aims to redefine the role of foresight in this evolving world, inspiring collaboration and transformation.

The World building tree

The World Building Framework


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
Click the icons to discover our 4 pillars.

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

EXPRESSION INFLUENCE: Nurture your futures leadership, self expression and presentation skills so that you can make an impact.

Learning Ateliers

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.

Futuring Journeys

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.

Collective Intelligence


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
The Trend Atelier community creates a collective intelligence.

Future Vision Themes


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?

Networking & Events


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.

Learn from me and the Trend Atelier community


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.
