Foresight 3.0 Indonesia


Foresight 3.0 Indonesia contributes to the ongoing program led by Dr Yanuar Nugroho for the Ministry of National Development Planning, in collaboration with the Nalar Institute ( and Centre for Innovation Policy & Governance (

The Foresight 3.0 approach extends the mainstream foresight methods – and also helps to apply and embed them into practice.  The key is to unlock the emerging ‘collective futures intelligence’, with a wider stakeholder community, deeper layers of value, and further horizons of transformation. This works on dual tracks – both within the foresight process itself, and for the users and society around.

A good example is the report on the experimental demonstration for interactive education in foresight and the ‘collective futures intelligence’ – at Gadjah Mada University – August 7th – Foresight in Public Policy.   



All these raise profound questions on the rebalancing of global South and North: de-colonization and emerging forms of sustainable development – as in the graphic here from Deeper City .

The applications to Indonesian national development are very topical –

  • Climate change impacts and responses, in a highly challenging region
  • National urban / spatial development in the world’s largest archipelago
  • Smart systems development with new forms of governance / public service
  • Context of rapid social / economic / cultural transformation.
