About His Project

Foresight allows individuals or organizations to be proactive, strategic, and explore long-range implications of decisions.  President Roosevelt said, “As a nation…if we do not exercise foresight…dark will be the future.”  Foresight for Government connects federal government planners with leaders across non-government organizations to improve decision-making.

James-Christian Blockwood has developed a pilot, one-day conference to identify key issues over the next 10-20 years, explore the implications of these issues, and provide recommendations to current and incoming government leaders in 2016, with the ultimate goal of creating a formal and permanent foresight process in government by 2020.
