Joost Vervoort

Joost Vervoort is the PI of the RE-IMAGINE project. He is Assistant Professor of Foresight for Environmental Governance at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development, Utrecht University, and an Honorary Research Associate at the Environmental Change Institute (ECI), University of Oxford. For the last seven years, Joost has led a team of researchers in a major multi-region scenarios project for the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) program of the CGIAR – where scenarios have been used to guide policies throughout South and Southeast Asia, East and West Africa, the Andes, Central America and the Pacific. His current research focuses on linking foresight research to earth system governance research, and on the use of simulation games as a new tool for engaging with the complexity of future sustainability in policy, strategy and education contexts.
