Human Progress and Human Services 2035

Patterned after IAF’s very successful Public Health 2030 effort, Human Progress and Human Services 2035 will work with the leading associations in the field as well as key state and local human service agencies.

With funding from the Kresge Foundation, IAF will through 2016 and 2017 work with the human service community to develop 20 year forecasts and scenarios that explore likely, challenging, and visionary directions in human progress (employment, income, availability of resources, societal goal – particularly equity) and human services (particularly from local nonprofit agencies and governments). Patterned after IAF’s very successful Public Health 2030 effort, Human Progress and Human Services 2035 will work with the leading associations in the field as well as key state and local human service agencies. National scenarios and a national workshop will be accompanied by scenarios in eight state or local settings. The scenarios will be released in 2017, but forecasts and preliminary scenarios will be done in 2016.
