A non-partisan think tank working towards a sustainable future for New Zealand.The Institute applies hindsight, insight and foresight to explore major challenges and opportunities facing New Zealand over the long term.
ForesightNZ workshop outputs are now published
The ForesightNZ workshop in April 2016 saw 36 young people come together from throughout New Zealand to explore the events and trends that could shape our long-term future. Participants worked to create a robust foresight tool in the form of a card game. The playing cards and accompanying workshop booklet are now published here. The playing cards instills any age with the capability to apply futures thinking, to be innovative and wrestle with the futures of New Zealand.
Lines within New Zealand infographic
This infographic illustrates the number of governance boundaries existing in New Zealand. The infographic suggests how difficult it is to focus discussions and integrate solutions across New Zealand’s many different governance boundaries. This raises the question of whether standardising boundaries would better facilitate the tackling of poverty. Click here to view.

Working Paper 2016/02: New Zealand King Salmon: A financial perspective
The Institute publishes three newsletters. The overarching newsletter showcases the work of the Institute and is produced twice a year – it outlines what has happened and what we hope to achieve over the next six months. The other two newsletters are research project based, and are published every few months to show and illustrate the narrative and actions happening broadly in New Zealand – see the TalentNZ and TacklingPovertyNZ projects for more information.
As a result of our observation that foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight, we have developed three interlinking policy projects: ForesightNZ, StrategyNZ and ReportingNZ.
These diverse topics represent areas where New Zealand has the potential to bring about meaningful change. How New Zealand responds to these issues will shape our public policy landscape for generations to come.
The Institute facilitates workshops on public policy issues that are strategic, complex, and long-term in nature. Learn more.
