Futures Literacy - shaping desirable futures

Under the current conditions – political, ecological, economic – it is clear that many concepts will no longer easily carry us into the future. However, the necessary changes first require imagination. According to the UNESCO, however, it is precisely the ability to imagine other futures, other systems and other solutions that is lacking.

Our troubled world is symptomatic of the widespread lack of positive imagination - says the UN. Desirable futures create hope, pacify conflicts and are the key to true progress.

Intuity founder Markus Turber has addressed this topic in his new book. In his essay "Futures Literacy", he and Elizabeth Hofvenschiöld, professor at the ESB Business School at the University of Reutlingen, futurist and applied ethicist, examine how futures literacy can help us anticipate a better tomorrow.

The booklet introduces you to futures literacy. It shows how this skill enables us to respond better to unforeseen events, find innovative solutions to complex problems and play a proactive role in shaping our future. We offer you guidance on how to expand your own thinking about the future in a structured way and how to apply these insights in your personal and professional life.

We hope you enjoy reading this book and that it inspires you to think about good futures.
