Are you in control of what your future is shaped like? Or are you just enjoying the ride and wait what the future brings to you? How can futures thinking be bridged into the present and how can an individual use futures thinking to shape their lives?

Interest towards Futures thinking and foresight is growing due to the increased uncertainty caused by COVID-19 pandemic. Foresight in strategy creation is also becoming popular as it’s a way to structure and clarify options and pathways of the complex world. Futures thinking is often misunderstood as prophecies of future. Scientific futures studies explore the alternative futures and development paths leading to those. It aims to decrease the uncertainty by offering alternative future scenarios and increase understanding on how those can be affected.
