Sulaiman Alkaabi

CEO Foresight Foundation Abu Dhabi


Sulaiman AlKaabi is currently the CEO of Future Foresight Foundation Abu Dhabi, UAE. In 2013, he highlighted the importance of establishing a center dedicated to forecasting the future at the Ministry of Interior (MoI), a center that aims at spreading such a concept among staff as well as the public. He also called for applying future foresight tools in various MoI departments. Since that time, Mr. AlKaabi launched several initiatives related to future foresight, such as organizing events (Police Foresight Forum, 2015) and lectures throughout the country and also inviting experts to give lectures about futures studies and future scenarios. Moreover, he carried out a personal initiative by creating the first Arabic website that focuses on promoting the concept of foresight in the Arab world, based on scientific standards. Now, he is in the process of launching a channel on YouTube for the same purpose.

Mr. AlKaabi is the first person from the UAE and Gulf region to join the Association of Professional Futurists (APF), and he is also a member of the World Future Society (WFS).

In July 2015, he proposed to establish a Foresight Center within the Federal Government, based in the Office of the Prime Minister, and to establish a department dedicated to future foresight in every ministry, directly linked to the above-mentioned center.

Mr. AlKaabi is the author of the “Future Foresight Encyclopedia” in Arabic, the first of its kind in the Arab World.
