Nesta is exploring participatory futures techniques that systematically engage people to imagine and create more sustainable, inclusive futures.

As the world struggles with increased complexity and uncertainty, we believe that the process of systematically imagining alternative, sustainable futures should be conducted in a more democratic and inclusive manner. To counter growing distrust in institutions and increase polarisation, we are exploring alternative and emerging methods that are being used to bring communities together to debate and create collective visions for the futures they desire.
