From Skilling for New Futures to Empowering Individuals and Communities

Abstract

Using the six pillars approach to Futures Studies, this report presents findings from a two day foresight workshop focused on Aboriginal workforce futures. The workshop was held in Australia. The scenarios developed were: (1) “We could die out”, (2) “Struggling snail”, (3) “Our numbers and powers are increasing”, (4) “People first, governed by Tjukulpa?,” and, (5) “Uber BabaKiueria”. The main desired narrative shift was from the “Mainstream way the only show in town” to “Aboriginal people are the solution to their own destiny.”
