    Dear New Colleagues,

    Let me introduce myself.  I am Sandra Janoff, co-developer of Future Search and Director of Future Search Network.  If you haven't heard of Future Search, please see www.futuresearch.net. Over the years we have trained over 5000 people in the principles and practice of bringing all the stakeholders in the system to create a strategic direction.  We have recently developed a way of translating this powerful face-to-face meeting to a virtual methodology.  We are offering our first training in this virtual method. I would like to offer you the opportunity to consider participating in this new training.  In this workshop we teach the basic principals of Future search along with training and access to special virtual tools and templates which we have developed. (https://futuresearch.net/future-search-in-virtual-space/).  This is a process used around the world by organizations and communities in all sectors. I think you will find it interesting.  I am attaching a brochure for the Workshop for your consideration.

    Future Search
    Since 1991 more than 5,000 people, working in every sector around the world, have attended the face-to-face workshop known as "Managing A Future Search". Participants have gone on to stimulate positive social, technological and economic cooperation around the globe. The workshop goal has always been to provide participants the tools, insights and support to manage successful Future Searches. Now we bring you the additional tools and techniques to allow you to run a Future Search in Virtual Space - whether completely on-line or hybrid.

    The Technology
    We developed Future Search in Virtual Space® with Bluescape®, a sophisticated, secure, visual platform used globally in large enterprises. We chose to partner with Bluescape so we could provide participants with access to "time lines," "mind maps," "creative scenarios," "common ground," small group and large group dialogues with all the interactivity of a Future Search meeting. It is an exciting digital experience!

    Future Search in Virtual Space – A Unique Opportunity
    We know that the principal of "everybody improving whole systems" is transformative. There is so much brokenness in the world today. We are energized about our readiness to respond, enabling people to cross boundaries and address seemingly intractable problems. FSVS offers the opportunity for more and more of us around the planet to participate in the battle against climate change, education inequities, social injustice and more. Imagine taking on these problems while cutting back on our carbon footprint. FSVS provides your sponsor a robust, secure process that works and your participants an online tool they can easily use, with no need to be a trained techie.
