Alternative Perspectives on the Future


Alternative Perspectives brings together “different” perspectives, concepts, and methods for approaching the future. It goes beyond the conventional to probe deeper beneath the surface and identify assumptions and archetypes hidden from routine analysis. Participants will hone their skills in challenging assumption and “taken-for-granted” explanations and increase their ability to not only critique, but craft fresh, novel alternative futures.


  1. To demonstrate a grasp of alternative ways of understanding, mapping, and influencing the future
  2. To raise individual awareness of their own personal development and how it influences their practice.
