The World’s Largest Gathering of Futurists
27 & 28 November
Forum for the Future
Alisha Bhagat is a futurist and strategist whose work focuses on the creative use of futures tools such as scenario planning, speculative design, and games, to impact long term positive change. She is the Futures Lead at Forum for the Future, a sustainability non-profit where she works with organizations looking to make significant impact in systems such as food, consumer goods, and healthcare. She also applies her futures practice to work on tackling global challenges such as poverty, climate, and democracy building in the hopes that we can apply a long-term lens to present-day actions. In addition to Alisha’s work at Forum, she is a part-time faculty member at the Parsons School of Design where she teaches immersive scenario planning and transdisciplinary design. Alisha is also one of the founders of the Diaspora Futures Collective, a group of futurists of color, who experiment with the ability of futures to expand to fit new modalities and integrating concepts of decoloniality, circularity, collaboration, and healing into futures work.
