Koi Tū: The Centre for Informed Futures is an independent and apolitical think tank and research centre based at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
We generate knowledge and tools to address critical long-term global and national challenges arising from rapid and far-reaching social, economic, technological and environmental change.
These transformations are happening at a scale and speed which is unique in human history. Ensuring our resilience as societies and as individuals in this challenging context requires analysis, interpretation and partnerships.
Our key areas of focus include:
- developing integrated, policy-relevant knowledge for decision making by communities and policy makers in a post-truth world;
- societal and individual resilience in the face of rapid change;
- impacts of rapidly emerging technologies; and
- understanding the trade-offs embedded within the sustainability agenda.
The Centre provides robust evidence synthesis and brokerage on these issues with a broad range of stakeholders.
The Centre was established in 2019 under the provisional name of the Centre for Science for Policy, Diplomacy and Society (SciPoDS).
