Facing the Future: Foresight and the Historic Environment
In line with UK Government, industry and commerce, Historic England is developing more sophisticated approaches to long term planning utilising the discipline of Foresight. In Facing the Future: Foresight and the Historic Environment we attempt to articulate the process of research and evidence gathering that is the key to the strategic, long term approach to heritage protection that in turn underpins robust policy.
Drawing on a wide range of Foresight activities undertaken by government departments, agencies, international bodies and commercial organisations; we aim to identify the areas in which Historic England can most make a difference.
- Section 1 introduces the first principles of Foresight and how we, as an organisation use it.
- Section 2 explains how we have identified what we consider to be the key overarching or macro drivers impacting the historic environment.
- Section 3 examines the implications of these drivers, via a range of more detailed cross cutting themes, and articulates their tangible effect on the historic environment.
- Sections 4 and 5 set out some initial considerations about active, planned and possible responses to the risks and opportunities identified, and the mechanisms for those responses.
