About the Awards
The NGFP awards were launched by SOIF in 2018. They are named after Joseph Jaworski, who champions the need for foresight to be united with service leadership to achieve social transformation, and the importance of putting heart and values at the centre of foresight activity. The awards aim to identify, support and showcase innovative global practice in strategic foresight.
The world is changing, and as it does, we need new sources of inspiration and innovation. The NGFP Awards recognise outstanding endeavour and innovation on futures work among the next generation of practitioners. To find out more visit the website or reach out to email@example.com.
