As a strategic foresight consultancy, we couldn’t ignore the increasing importance of both digital and offline community networks as we wade through this inter-Covid period and learn how to connect with one another in meaningful ways again.
With this year’s events programme in full swing, and with a wide range of new microtrends and macrotrends, we wanted to ensure that our members and attendees are getting the most out of their experience, and that doesn’t just come from working with us but with each other too. And so The Future Laboratory Community was born.
Join today to access news updates, online events, live Q&As and networking opportunities with other members as well as The Future Laboratory in-house team of experts. We hope to see you there.

Our new The Future Laboratory Community network launch reveals how communities are also about sharing knowledge, building relationships and discussing those very challenges we’ve identified – and with the help of fellow community members, turning them into viable and sustainable solutions.
As The Future Laboratory’s co-founder, Chris Sanderson puts it: ‘We’ve defined The Future Laboratory by its sense of community over the years – from the convivial nature of its briefings, forums and events, to the design of its Elder Street headquarters. As our many clients know, The Future Laboratory has always been about great networking opportunities in equally convivial gardens, roof terraces, and even beside bee apiaries.
But now, as The Future Laboratory moves to its new biophilic headquarters at 6 Orsman Road – by award winning architects, Waugh Thistleton – we’re upping the ante in terms of how we’d like to define our sense of community in a 2022, inter-Covid context.’
