All sorts of people – as politicians, trend-watchers, scientists, movie directors - keep on telling us about the future. What if one takes all these predictions together and uses them as tiny bricks to build possible tomorrows? How do they fit? What if...? Futureperspections is a tool to create (future) scenarios. It serves as a basis to communicate and visualize. Used in a workshop, it can help to discover opportunities, explain connections, give arguments, develop ideas and illustrate fictional worlds. The tool comprises a table, several items, an ever-growing collection of cards with information about past, current and future events and three explanation booklets.
