Next training course : 1st February to 5th April 2014
The European Laboratory of Political Anticipation (LEAP) operates on the base of a novel method of « political anticipation », developed and perfected by Franck Biancheri during 30 years of outstanding experience of European political – associative practice. This method, which emphasises the principles of objective detachment, the finding and prioritisation of strong trends, the identification of areas/periods of breakup,…makes the projection of future scenarios possible, based on an objective understanding of the present related to the past and the future. This anticipation work is “political” in the sense that it emphasises the importance of responsibility and action in the future’s creation: tomorrow is what we make of it. But this method is, above all, a guidebook of principles of intellectual rigour applicable to everyone’s decision-making process in every area: business management, community administration, political mediation, economics, finance, property, families, etc…
In 2009, political anticipation was further perfected with the publication of ( the Manual of Political Anticipation by Marie-Hélène Caillol) and a first series of training courses jointly organised with the Sorbonne.
The success of these training courses lead to Franck Biancheri creating a foundation for training in Political Anticipation, FEFAP, based in Seville in Spain, providing training in LEAP’s method of analysing the future in four languages (French, English, German and Spanish), from an online campus .
For the first term in 2014, FEFAP has made its training programme more flexible
The course’s 10 sessions can now be purchased:
. in a package of five sessions of one’s choice
. or all 10 sessions
(only the latter leads to the award of the FEFAP/IRPA training certificate in political anticipation).
In addition, FEFAP recognises the highly interactive character of its training courses and brings scope for discussion into the programme. The next course is entitled: “discuss the world crisis using the specialised principles of political anticipation-And anticipate its next stages”
Each session is based on a methodological point applied in the context of a discussion between course participants and the teacher on the topics in the GEAB (GlobalEurope Anticipation Bulletin) . The programme for the first term of 2014, which will take place from the 1st February to the 5th April, is as follows :
