Futures Thinking for Social Foresight (2005)

Richard A Slaughter with Marcus Bussey

This downloadable PDF publication provides teachers and students with a practical overview of futures studies. It also acts as a source book for teachers and others looking for activities and material that will help to develop futures literacy in their students. The long-term goal is that of creating social foresight. To these ends it offers a tapestry of sections that weave patterns via ideas and practical action. There are five main sections:

  • Mapping Futures Studies – Key concepts
  • Context and Applications
  • Futures Concepts and Related Techniques
  • Methods
  • Futures Thinking for Social Foresight

In addition to these practical and user-friendly sections, there are a number of ‘reflections’ or short pieces that invite deeper consideration. In addition there are numerous diagrams and figures, many of which have been produced especially for this publication.
