Due to the eight-year research work of a group of scientists and visionaries in Kyiv (Ukraine), an asset was created, organized in the Foundation for Future (FFF).
FFF functions as a platform for partnerships in projects related to the future aspects of public authorities, civil society and business.
FFF is a network of interrelated research, design search, communication formats and platforms.
FFF is focused on promoting the methodology and practice of dealing with the future.
The purpose of FFF is the consolidation and disclosure of an intellectual potential in Ukraine, its inclusion in global intellectual process for solving the challenges of transformation in various spheres of life.
FFF’s activities include seminars (over 300), public lectures and presentations, international conferences (5 events), own and partner projects, publication of collections and monographs based on FFF research results (10 papers).
FFF acted as the initiator (or co-initiator) of a whole cluster of projects.
The core of the FFF is the Council of Founders, composed of authoritative experts in the fields of philosophy, global climate processes and ecology, economics, IT, education, architecture and urban studies, as well as civil activists, business representatives, and young analysts. The communicative and partner network of the FFF includes about 50 public organizations and government agencies.
FFF is an independent organization that is not funded by any of the political parties or oligarchic groups operating in Ukraine, does not use state resources, but exists at the expense of philanthropic donations of representatives of medium-sized businesses.
In order to further increase of the mentioned above asset, we are interested in cooperation with other organizations.
