A guide to using mass involvement to shape the future

A guide to using mass involvement to shape the future
Nesta has released a new guide, ‘Our Futures: By the people, for the people’ which looks at how mass involvement with shaping the future can solve complex problems.

Moving beyond citizen assemblies and traditional public engagement, participatory futures techniques help people to develop a collective image of the future they want, so that we can make better, more informed decisions.

Governments, city leaders, public institutions, funders, and civil society must be at the forefront of this approach, supporting it through funding, strategy and practice.
Nesta’s guide offers practical suggestion on how to do this, including carrying out publicly-funded, mission-orientated research and creating new legislation that requires UK Government departments to use these approaches to inform decision-making and strategies. You can download the report here.
