In my work as free-lance consultant for CIFAL Scotland (formerly CIFAL Findhorn) I have collaborated with the Scottish national government, the Moray Council, the Highlands and Islands Council, and the city of Dundee in a series of capacity building and training workshops on sustainable development issues such as: climate change, sustainable transport solutions, low and zero carbon housing, eco-industrial parks, the hydrogen economy, urban development, and sustainable islands.

Since its creation in 1994 the Foresight Programme has helped the UK Government to think systematically about the future. We advise government about how to ensure today’s decisions are robust to future uncertainties. By combining the latest science and evidence with futures analysis, we help policy makers tackle complex issues with a better understanding of the potential opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
