Follow the journey of the Partos Future Exploration through podcast stories

Partos has recently started a future exploration for both its members and Partos as a whole. This is a strategic, creative and participatory process to define “dynamic and adaptive future pathways” that can withstand uncertain and complex futures. These pathways will be designed together, primarily with members of Partos as well as other stakeholders, and this process will be facilitated by Butterfly Works, Fonkeling and the Resilience lab of TU Delft. As part of this exploration, Partos and Disrupt Development embark on a journey to voice development professionals from Partos members, front-running innovators, and disruptors. We dive into the ins- and outs of the future of development and its implications for Partos and its members.
