What & why

A way to make your futures world feel more credible is to develop a set of tangible 'facts' around it. Try to ask yourself: In this future, what headlines would be in the newspaper, what statistics and numbers would be highlighted, what makes up breaking news? Working with future details in this way will not only help the world seem more real, it will also make it easier to explain to others what it's about.


Think about your futures world. What has changed between now and then and what does that mean to the very important facts? Are they about health, income, gender equality, education or sustainability? What are the newspaper headlines of the day? What are the TV programmes about? What topics are podcasts discussing? What would an 'expert' say and focus on when being interviewed in a talkshow, and what quotes would be written on young people's demonstration signs?
