Welcome to Foresight For Development

Reviving Our Culture, Mapping Our Future

This tells the story of a special gathering in Venda, South Africa and a community process in eco-cultural mapping. Indigenous leaders from Altai (Russia) and the Colombian Amazon and NGO representatives from Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa accompany the Tshidvizhe community as they explore a simple yet powerful way to express the past and present of their territory and livelihoods onto hand-drawn maps. The maps highlight the importance of their culture, sacred sites and territory, and empower them to map the future towards which they need to strive.
