Sustainable Experiences are the pressing need for the “Age of Responsibility” where companies must address Environment, Social and Governance norms. Product design must factor in materials and processes that minimise waste and business models need to imagine the complete journey from conception to recycling. Silos won’t do, the experience needs a lot more from all sides. Trust in the age of AI needs to be earned, anew! Futurescape works with companies in designing new product journeys and experiences, learning solutions and services.

India cannot afford a development paradigm that does not reduce Poverty. Off late India faces the problem of Jobless Growth with the faster Economy Growth Rate, which is not inclusive. Being having the largest number of Poor in the World, India’s Poverty Reduction Challenge is also a Global Concern. Thus to tackle the Challenge of Poverty, India must make its Economic Growth work for the Poor. It must factor into its structure the Poor’s reasons of being Poor i.e. the Ecology on which Poor depends for it’s Survival. Agriculture and Forests sustain India’s 60% People’s Life. So Environment is not just a mere elitist subject, but an Economic Need indeed. So Sustainable Development is an imperative today. IISD focuses its activities on Poverty alleviation through Sustainable Livelihood Generation, Energy Security to sustain the Present Day Economic Growth, Adaptation & Mitigation of Climate Change that is impacting the Livelihoods of the Poor, more than ever and to push Cleaner Technology, ensuring Sustainable Development of Society.
