Shiela on the Future
The futures are a commons. We should fight for it with the same vigor as we do for water and air. If we don’t, we might lose both.
Shiela is the Futures Learning Advisor of the Center for Engaged Foresight. She is one of the co-founders of the Philippine Futures Thinking Society (PhilFutures). Shiela is an Association of Professional Futurists Emerging Fellow for 2021 and currently in the Inaugural Cohort of Common Purpose’s Sky Blue Environmental Leadership Program.
Shiela worked as a social development professional and consultant in the Philippines for more than 15 years and briefly in Cambodia before focusing on futures work. She is an activist and speaker on animal rights, the climate crisis, and futures.
