  2. 2. Introducing Forum for the Future and the School of System Change Forum for the Future2 Forum for the Future (FftF) is a 23-year-old leading global sustainability non-profit. From our offices in the UK, US, Singapore and India we are working to accelerate the big shift to a sustainable future. We work with people, organisations (across foundations, civil society, business) and initiatives to address complex environmental and social challenges. We focus on three key strategies: 1) We innovate solutions through collaboration. 2) We develop and deliver transformational strategies for systems change. 3) We equip people to drive systemic change in practice. We have nurtured the School of System Change to support and coach people and organisations to deliver system change in practice. In the School we focus on making systems approaches applicable in practice to drive the desired impact towards system-wide goals. Our approach is to help people and organisations navigate the emerging field of systems change, to build capacity and to coach them in order to find the appropriate tools and methods for them.
