Beyond the Mundane – Towards Post-Conventional Futures Practice

by Richard Slaughter

This essay suggests that the futures field has reached a new stage in its development; one that incorporates powerful new tools, frameworks and options. Within this context the paper considers some of the ways that futurists can respond to the global predicament, re-defining what some have called the “resolutique”, or arena of possible solutions. Futurists can best contribute by deliberately cultivating ‘post conventional’ futures practice. The underlying theme of the paper is to consider what it may mean to ‘wake up’ at the cultural level.
