As a trend researcher you should be aware of the broader field of futures studies and foresight to understand the position of trends within the professional domain. Joining networks like FEN will help you to connect ✨ with other types of foresight practitioners then you might be used to and expand your view.
You can join FEN for free, also when you are still a student in trends or futures studies. 👌🏼 They are eager to get more younger people to sign up.
If you know any other interesting networks for trend researchers and future oriented people, let me know!
