Episode #17 Prateeksha Singh: Strategic foresight, systems change, and designing participatory futures


Prateeksha Singh is a multidisciplinary practitioner whose practice sits at the confluence of systems + foresight + design research. She collaboratively explores how applying a living system lens can provide additional tools and perspectives for working with complex yet adaptive challenges. She is driven to working with diverse voices and harnessing inclusive and plural images of the future, and her work in the past has focused on gender, equity, and nature.

She is currently based in Bangkok as the Head of Experimentation with the UNDP Asia-Pacific Regional Innovation Centre, where she supports the building of institutional innovation capabilities within regional UNDP offices, and external partners. These capabilities range from foresight, to reflecting on cohesion of current portfolios, systems change theory, and public policy innovation.

Prateeksha holds a M.Des in Strategic Foresight & Innovation from OCAD University in Toronto, sat on the board of the Association of Professional Futurists from Jan 2018 – Aug 2021, chairs the annual virtual APF Futures Festival, and is the 2019 Next Generation Foresight Practitioner global award recipient for her work on equity based plural futures.
