What we do in the present is profoundly influenced by our expectations of our futures.
The annual 'Futuring for Sustainability Summer School' is an interactive course, held from 13-17 July 2020. During this one week course we teach students to understand how techniques of futuring contribute to realizing societal transformations towards sustainability: living well equitably within ecological means.
Learn to imagine positive futures and mobilize to achieve them in a democratic fashion. Develop an understanding of futuring techniques including scenario planning, modelling, backcasting, experiential futuring, art-based approaches and design. As a participant you will try out these techniques by experimenting in a real-world setting in work studio sessions. This summer school builds students’ capacity to develop new visions and imaginations of possible futures and alternative sustainability pathways. Interested to know more?

In 2020, the Futuring for Sustainability Summer School is organised in collaboration with Pathways to Sustainability.
