FUTUREPERFECT is a project conceived and developed by John Manoochehri to increase the engagement of specialists and the general public in issues of sustainable design, architecture and lifestyles. Originating as a lecture series on sustainable cities, launched in May 2010 at the Arkitektur Museum Stockholm and supported by Svensk Form, the concept has now evolved to include a column in RUM magazine and the FUTUREPERFECT Festival.

The practical aim of FUTUREPERFECT is simply to create and harness innovative discussion spaces where experts and individuals can meet in much more engaging and enriching environments than they have become accustomed to. The vision of FUTUREPERFECT is to enable the gradual convergence of concepts and practices of sustainable living on a simple proposition: that to truly live sustainably is to truly live well.

FUTUREPERFECT & Ängsbacka Kursgård
Ängsbacka Kursgård is a course-centre focused on personal development and is one of the largest businesses and employers in the local area. Its summer "No Mind" festival for personal development is one of the largest and most successful of its kind in Northern Europe. In 2007 John Manoochehri and his sustainable design and architecture company, Resource Vision, were asked by then-owners of Ängsbacka Kursgård, Kåre Landfald and Kjell-Jörgen Kolstad, to help them evolve Ängsbacka into an eco-community. This led to a package of work called LjusHus, proposing the development of Ängsbacka as a "meeting-place for sustainable human development."

The achievements of this phase of work include, in addition to raising awareness, an international meeting organised by Resource Vision on sustainable human development financed by Karlstads Tillväxtcentrum. Since that time, Ängsbacka Kursgård's ownership transferred to an ekonomisk förening (cooperative member association), and with the support of current EU financing, the förening engaged Resource Vision to lead a project package to continue the evolution of Ängsbacka and the surrounding area towards a sustainable future.

The current project, Ängsbacka FORWARD, is funded by the EU funding stream "Leader" and includes an explicit Development Track which aims to promote projects that have significant external-partner input, such as new festivals. This year's FUTUREPERFECT has been developed as a project developing the platform of the Ängsbacka Ekonomisk Förening - Resource Vision is a member of the association - with significant support and collaboration from Ängsbacka Kursgård AB to make the site and festival arrangement available to FUTUREPERFECT at cost price. If the event makes any profit, this is shared with both Resource Vision and the Ängsbacka member association.
