Join us in Athens, Greece from 20-21st April 2023, for a 2 day course on the Transformative Scenarios Process.
Are you an agent of change, an influencer in your sector, or a citizen seeking to better your community? Transformative Scenarios Processes are about creating the future. In this course you’ll learn how transformative scenarios offer a way to unblock situations that are polarised or stuck. The facilitated process combines imagination and rigour.
The structured yet creative process helps diverse actors to see the different futures that are possible and discover what they can and must do. Transformative scenarios help both participants and a broader audience to better understand what might happen through narratives of how the future may unfold – and how this unfolding future can be influenced.
Where most methods for scenario planning primarily focus on adapting to the future, transformative scenarios seek not only to understand and adapt, but also to shape and influence the future.
The approach, described in the book Transformative Scenario Planning written by Adam Kahane of Reos Partners, was born 25 years ago and has been applied and adapted many times since then, from post-apartheid South-Africa to conflict-ridden Colombia. Reos Partners has in recent years conducted a wide variety of such processes, including in the fields of drug policy, democracy, the environment, development, justice, education, land reform, and food security, at national, regional, and hemispheric levels.
* We strongly recommend Adam Kahane’s book as a course pre-reading.
This 2-day, hands-on course will give participants an understanding of:
- what the methodology looks like in practice,
- how and where it can be applied,
- how it generates change,
- what is required for success,
- how to get a process started.
