Ben is the Global Lead for Strategic Foresight at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). This means he helps teams around the world explore possible futures so we can prepare for potential crises, uncover new opportunities for action, and make better decisions today. He is working with CSER to explore attitudes to risk, creative communications around complex hazards, and how we might use existential risks as a lens to help reimagine humanitarian action. Drawing on the depth and breadth of the CSER community, and connecting them to our communities and aid projects around the world, promises to generate some really powerful new ideas.
Ben has spent 20 years in the humanitarian sector and the media, helping organisations adapt to a changing world.
