This subject invites students to ask ‘big questions’ about the future, supported by insights from developments in diverse disciplinary and professional fields. Students critically examine existing environmental, societal and technological future visions to probe the values and assumptions underpinning them. They work in multidisciplinary teams on industry or community partner briefs exploring contemporary sustainability and social challenges and draw on a range of perspectives, including intergenerational or silent stakeholders and non-human others, to generate alternative future scenarios. In this process, students work with futuring methods from across industries and disciplinary domains to identify transformative paths to more sustainable and ethical, regenerative futures. By so doing, students begin their journey towards becoming critical and empathetic futures-thinkers.
