Foresight Manual

As the 21st century is transforming at incomparable speed, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development envisioned us to imagine what the world will look like in 2030 which then forces us to rethink about what ‘development’ will actually mean – ’Decent Work’ from 10 years ago will definitely mean different thing in 10 years from now. The challenges we face are large, complex and continually evolving.

To not only shape the future world from the past, an innovative tools is required to help us ideate, reframe, share and realise our own future.

Foresight is one of the tools that enables all of us as well as government to think creatively to adapt and prepare for the unpredictable future as the tool has an ability to leverage emerging opportunities, minimising risk and present decision-makers with more and better choices for inclusive growth and social justice.

There are many innovation platforms all over the world. What makes Thailand Social Innovation Platform unique is that we have created a Thai platform fully dedicated to the SDGs, where social innovators in Thailand can access a unique eco system of entrepreneurs, corporations, start-ups, universities, foundations, non-profits, investors, etc. This platform thus seeks to strengthen the social innovation ecosystem in Thailand in order to better be able to achieve the SDGs. Even though a lot of great work within the field of social innovation in Thailand is already happening, the area lacks a central organizing entity that can successfully engage and unify the disparate social innovation initiatives taking place in the country.

This innovation platform guides you through innovative projects in Thailand, which address the SDGs. It furthermore presents how these projects are addressing the SDGs.

Aside from mapping cutting-edge innovation in Thailand, this platform aims to help businesses, entrepreneurs, governments, students, universities, investors and others to connect with new partners, projects and markets to foster more partnerships for the SDGs and a greener and fairer world by 2030.

The ultimate goal of the platform is to create a space for people and businesses in Thailand with an interest in social innovation to visit on a regular basis whether they are looking for inspiration, new partnerships, ideas for school projects, or something else.

We are constantly on the lookout for more outstanding social innovation projects in Thailand. Please help us out and submit your own or your favorite solutions here
