As a result of our observation that foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight, we have developed three interlinking policy projects: ForesightNZStrategyNZ and ReportingNZ.

Exploring New Zealand’s probable and possible futures

Building pathways to New Zealand’s preferred future

Contributing to an informed New Zealand

Types of Projects 

We have divided our projects into two types: policy projects and research projects. Our flagship project, Project 2058 (which refers to the year 2058), continues to drive all of our work, and the policy projects and research projects contribute to it and each other in different ways. The policy projects shape and guide the research projects and the research projects inform the policy projects. We see the relationship between these two types of projects as constantly feeding off each other – as illustrated in Figure 1 below.

About the policy projects
As a result of our observation that in policy-making, foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight, we developed three interlinking policy projects: ForesightNZStrategyNZ and ReportingNZ. Each must align if we want New Zealand to develop durable, robust and forward-looking public policy.
