For children and families to flourish in the future, the people who aim to serve them need to take an honest look at how their systems operate today, articulate bold aspirations for the future, and chart a path toward that vision.
Futures thinking is a discipline that helps users to examine their current realities, explore possibilities for the future, and chart informed, future-facing paths forward.
This approach empowers leaders to shape the future that young children will inherit and to resist the notion that the future is out of our control.
This toolkit supports that effort and those conversations. It contains instructions, examples, and templates for three futures thinking methods that can be used by anyone who wants to create powerful long-term change for children and families.
