Part consultancy, part thinktank, part social enterprise, Halcyon helps you prepare for and respond to personal, organisational and societal change.

See Halcyon's unique reporting on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and contact us to discuss how we may be able to help you contribute to and/or create value from the SDGs.

Halcyon monitors, analyses and advises upon personal, organisational and societal issues and responses. Contact us to discuss how we may be able you deal with these issues and develop your own responses.

Follow Halcyon's forthcoming 52:52:52 campaign on Twitter, which will feature 52 issues and 52 responses over 52 weeks.

Halcyon Lenses


Halcyon offers you a wide variety of lenses through which to view and interact with our content:

  • by Topic: we actively monitor, analyse, and report on over 100 issues, values and ideas.
    • by I-Site: we identify responses to the world's most pressing issues, imagine new responses, are inspired by how others are responding, examine the impact of our choices, find innovative ways to improve how we react and spot trends that might change our responses in the future.
      • by Level: you can choose the most appropriate level of response, be it at the personal, the organisational or wider societal level.
      • by Timeline: we also examine how emerging trends might affect your responses in the future, from the distant past, through till now (2017), and right on through to 2100 and beyond.
      • by Space: most responses to most issues are applicable globally, but we also make it clear when a given response is more appropriate within a particular country or region.
      • by Signifier: an index of further key words (e.g. concepts, individuals) which occur regularly across Halcyon sites.

      Please therefore feel free to select the lenses that best meet your own needs from the drop-down Trend, I-Site, Level, Timeline and Space menus in the right-hand column of every Halcyon page

      • MICROSCOPE (consult diagnose)
      • TELESCOPE (supermarket, stars, choices, range, open-mindedness 7bn, curious)
      • KALEIDOSCOPE (turn test hypothesis narrow chemistry filter+)
      • DUOSCOPE (JANUS) right/left binary yes/no stop/go alive/dead
      • OMNISCOPE (review everything)
      • MICROSCOPE (decide choose monitor review change)
