Futures Literacy

You cannot change it, if you cannot read it

Learn to read the future

If we do not understand the alphabet or the language of a country or a field, then we cannot communicate clearly in that space. We are unable to read the signs, hear the warnings, see the opportunities. We are illiterate and vulnerable.

Futures Literacy gives you those building blocks to start to read the future so that you can use the models to make substantial plans to craft your preferred future.

Futures Literacy is essential

Understand Time

To read the future, we must have an understanding of the past and a respect for time.

Learn the Characteristics of the Future

Both Inbound and Outbound drivers influence the future, which can be defined as Possible, Plausible, Preferable and more.

Get a handle on change

Understanding how change happens, how we respond to it and how to work with change, is essential to embracing the future.


If we don’t know what we want from the future, it is very difficult to plan towards it and impossible to invite others into it.
