Tools for Hope was a one-day event organised by the Association of Professional Futurists as part of its regular ProDev (professional development) series. It was a practical hands-on event designed to help people who are interested in using futures work to create change, held in Bloomsbury, London, on 7th November, 2017.

Tricia Lustig and Martin Hazell presented “Using appreciative inquiry”, an engagement and implementation tool which finds and captures the energy for change. Foresight is not foresight until action occurs – they talked about when to use it, and when not using case studies to illustrate the learning points and how positive action followed successful inquiries.
