Values-driven futures for your cause, business or industry

Scientists estimate humanity has until 2028 to reduce the impacts of climate change. With the added uncertainty of the pandemic, there has never been a better time to think more about the future.

Future Scouting resources and workshops combine speculative design, futures and foresight, life-centred design, and design thinking with a values-driven approach. They aim to inspire designers, creators, innovators to make time for projects that might steer us toward more preferred, values-driven futures.

The Future Scouting Team Game

Play the team design game

Scientists have created a wormhole to alternate futures!

To help steer humanity toward a better tomorrow, you—a Future Design Scout—will be sent forward in time to design with future technologies. Your mission is to bring back an invention that keeps the world aligned with a common Key Value (kindness, empathy, privacy, etc).

A game of fast design, Future Scouting combines speculative design with designing for values. You’ll ideate, sketch, and review and sabotage other Scouts in your quest to design the invention that best enables the Key Value.
