The Future of Wellbeing Foresight Project, Minnesota, USA (2022)

Planning for global wellbeing – Minnesota leading the way

Project Overview

Future iQ is working with the Global Wellness Consortium, Green Umbrella, Global Minnesota, and Greater MSP to design and facilitate a visioning process to explore Minnesota’s role in the future of global health and wellbeing.

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened global awareness around not only physical health and wellbeing, but emotional, social, occupational, and financial. Advancements in healthcare and other sectors are accelerating at an exponential rate and now is the time to explore how Minnesota can take a leadership role in the future of global health and wellbeing.

The visioning process includes convening a series of Focus Groups and a Think-Tank to help the state’s leading experts and thought leaders across sectors explore macro trends and develop expected and preferred futures for Minnesota’s role in global health and wellbeing. The results of this initiative will contribute to the production of a well-researched, thought-provoking foresight paper designed to provide guidance to businesses, government leaders, and educational institutions. The initiative will culminate in the presentation of findings and panel discussions at The Future of Wellbeing – Minnesota Leading the Way global conference in May 2022.
