About Second Sight
MULTI VARIOUS VIEWS ON THE THE FUTURE!
Second Sight is a platform, a publisher and a lab about trend research and trendforecasting. With its quarterly magazine Second Sight provides an ongoing research into the spirit of our times.
Second Sight is a networked based organization. So it is not about one individual view on the zeitgeist or future, but a compilation of various views and different insights. Together they make up the complete picture and realize Second Sight*!
Trendwatching is as old as time, but the extensive digitalization of our world makes the effect of trends more transparent and faster and with greater consequences. So Second Sight believes that an organization itself must get a hold on the changes in the world. Therefore Second Sight provides various views and insights by offering inspiring insights from a variety of forecast experts and other visionary thinkers. In addition Second Sight, together with the experts of the extended network, teaches the skills for Zeitgeist-study, Scenario-study and Translation and implementation of forecasts and trends. And Second Sight also organizes in-company workshops and presentations.
Second Sight was founded by Andrea Wiegman en Jan Bletz in 2008 .
Previously they established the trend magazine Eye (1997) and in 2007 they instated the TWOTY Awards, which contribute to the professionalization of the trend business. In this context, the Second Sight Trend Academy was started in 2011.

* [Second Sight] ‘is a form of extrasensory perception, the supposed power to perceive things that are not present to the senses, whereby a person perceives information, in the form of a vision, about future events before they happen (precognition) … Second Sight may have originally been so called because normal vision was regarded as coming first, while supernormal vision is a secondary thing, confined to certain individuals.’ [Bron: Wikipedia]
