I hold a UNESCO-Co Chair in Anticipatory Leadership & Futures Capabilities while being a Senior Advisor heading Arts and Culture at the non-profit Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, and I've taught as external lecturer at the Danish National School of Performing Arts and the IT-University Copenhagen.

Over the last decade, I have delivered strategic foresight and thought leadership projects at the pioneering think tank, while authoring flagship reports and commissioned research.

Today, I focus on educational systems that prioritize anticipatory capabilities and cultural institutions that explore their role in bringing futures to a wider audience and stimulate anticipatory capabilities and social imagination. As part of Teach the Future I continue to integrate futures thinking into various curricula domains, working towards a future where youth acquires tools and knowledge to anticipate futures and shape their own.

Recent work include:

  • Promoting Anticipatory Leadership at the Global Futures Forum - Coalition for the UN We Need

  • Initiating Futures Philanthropy with PHILEA - Philanthropy Europe Association

  • Training and upskilling over 200 staff members in futures thinking and foresight work at the Asian Development Bank

  • Hosting a Danish National Public Service TV show on Youth Futures (Hvem styrer dit liv? DRP3)

  • 20-module virtual foresight program for Niels Brock Copenhagen Business College

  • Keynote at the International Conference for Futures Design (Expanding realities with futures literacy)

  • Guest lectures at Parsons Paris' Design Futures BA

  • Designing experiential futures literacy experiences for Futurium, Berlin

  • Speaking on queer futures at CPH World Pride '21

  • Curating UNESCO's Global Futures Literacy Summit

  • SteerCo member at the Futures Oriented Museum Synergies network

Professor at the Danish National School of Performing Arts

"Together with CIFS, we have launched a new research program, Imagining the Future, at the new Master of Fine Arts in Performing Arts at Denmark's National School of Performing Arts. The students have, with tremendous enthusiasm, embraced the partnership with CIFS through their workshop, lectures, and futures literacy laboratories.


The merge between The Institute's methods of applied futures studies and the creative and artistic field of performing arts has become impressively fruitful. We are very grateful for the achievements made possible by the contribution from CIFS to create new stories and new ways of telling them."
