We would all like to know what will happen in the future. The first futurists tried to predict exactly what would happen in the future. They soon found that was not possible.

The further we look into the future, the more unpredictable it is. Rather than predicting the future it is more fruitful to look at understanding broad patterns of history and looking for emerging trends that could become much more influential in future.

So, futures are plural. We will ask what can we do now, to be more adaptable for whichever possible futures may eventuate. We will learn skills like scenarios, macro-histories, systems thinking, futures triangle, back casting and causal layered analysis to look at personal futures, Christchurch futures and global futures.

Dr Victor MacGill recently completed PhD through the University of the Sunshine Coast using systems science and futures to explore leadership in groups who do not have ongoing structured leaders (acephalous).
