This course will enable students to gain advanced and extensive insight into futures trends, as well as futures thinking approaches and methodologies to inform systems and social change. Futures trends such as climate change, automation, the acceleration of technological innovation and demographic changes amongst many others, will have a significant affect on the desirability and feasibility of systems and social change approaches. This course will expose students to a range of futures thinking methodologies and approaches to support them to understand and integrate destabilising trends into their systems and social change work. Students will also engage with Indigenous and non-Western approaches to futures thinking and futures methodologies.
