Making Sense of the Future: How Anthropologists "See" it

We will explain the need to understand the future as a society with unknown peoples, territories and landmarks.


Through a business example we will show possible future scenarios.

We will discuss implications for the future by exploring ways that prepare businesses to envision the extra-long view (the future of the future).

Who Is Behind It

This web page has been created by Berlin and worldwide based anthropologists engaged in using anthropology in different ways. The Global Business Anthropology Summit, held annually, in different places around the world, is a collaboration among anthropologists from an array of professional environments across a global network. The aim of this network is to continue to draw out and learn from the experiences of these practitioners, exposing new ways and conditions for collaborating with different institutions, organizations, and companies, using anthropology in work.
