The project helped transform the Colombian national planning processes by making participatory futures standard practice and incorporating a much broader range of participants in consultations. It was a priority to include marginalised groups who are often overlooked in decision-making processes.
Overlooked participants got a safe space to explore their futures and gain valuable insights. Community members proposed a number of concrete actions for the government to review. The project created a fundamental shift in planning practices for organizations working with communities. The methodology used in this project is available for broader use.
