Question:

Can you design and conduct a training course to capacitate activists and civil society organisations to facilitate transformative scenario planning processes?

Process:

Preparatory meeting (online) with all the involved organisations
Inventory of needs of participants
Four-day training course
Optional individual guidance of participants after the training

Results:

Participants have gained the skills to develop different scenarios for the future and to design the strategies to realize the desired scenario for the future.

CIVICUS, a worldwide alliance for civil society organisations and activists, was looking for new ways of thinking and working to support member organisations in acquiring sufficient funds. This challenge, and the desire to be better equipped to deal with the uncertainty of these organisations operating in civil society across the world, brought CIVICUS to Perspectivity.

“The training is very relevant for the work of everyone in our sector and it can be a real transformative initiative – it is extremely innovative and relevant for strategic planning”- Participant of the training

We designed and facilitated a four-day training about the art of transformative scenario planning at the headquarters of CIVICUS in Johannesburg. Thirteen participants from different countries (Senegal, New Zealand, Cambodia, Argentina, Italy, Pakistan and Fiji) experimented with scenario planning and the power of multi-stakeholder dialogues. The participants underwent a learning-by-doing experience, where each participant used their context as the starting point. In this way, they were capable of taking new ways of thinking and working back to their own organisations and embed them into their strategic planning processes.
