What is Three Horizons?

A simple and intuitive way to help people have better conversations about the future and map the changes they want to create.

Watch a short introduction to Three Horizons

• Map the challenges you’re facing today in the first horizon (H1), the goals or visions of the future you want to create in the third (H3), via the key activities and ideas that can help you get there in the second horizon (H2).

• Encourage conversations about challenges in the present, aspirations for the future, and the kinds of innovation you need in order to address both.

• Enable transformative change by drawing attention toward systemic patterns.

What our trainings cover

Our trainings equip you to: Bring people with different views onto the same page, create a shared language for speaking about the future, and appreciate the value of multiple actors.

You will learn to apply Three Horizons to any topic or task, scope and build a Three Horizons map, and distinguish between innovation that sustains the status quo (H2-) or fosters transformative innovation (H2+).

Through Three Horizons, you will also develop practical facilitation skills for both online and face to face sessions, and use the library of resources made available to you.

What participants say about the training

Loved working in groups and facilitating ourselves. Three Horizons is a great strategic and visionary tool. It really sparked thoughts and aligned groups for a common journey.


Loved this training! It was a great balance of interactive and taught, lots of stretching and breaks were fab. Also met some fantastic people from interesting industries.


This facilitation training has really deepened my understanding and built my confidence to convene.


Deeply impressive to see the applications of Three Horizons, and feels good to be connected with the community/network and the leading edge work that is in flow.
