AFLI has conducted a number of high level programmes, working with young leaders, with leadership as an underlying theme, but also building upon an acknowledged expertise in the use of the Scenario methodology in exploring national development and leadership issues. To date three major projects have been conducted.

Nigeria 2025

Alternative visions of the future of Nigeria completed in 2007, which received a standing ovation as hitting the mark, when presented to the Nigerian Economic Summit. Read the full report, summary document and see the video of the scenarios at the dedicated Nigeria 2025 page.

SA 2020

Alternative futures of South Africa created by a multi-disciplinary group of young leaders in 2005.

AFLI assisted in formulating national transformation strategy, organising a national forum, and provided leadership training to the Cabinet, including the Prime Minister, all Ministers and senior advisers.
