A public imagination campaign created by IFTF. Our challenge is to generate up to 100 ideas for positive long-term adaptations, solutions or change that could come about directly as a result of our current crises.
More details are provided by IFTF at https://www.iftf.org/imaginable/
Here is a summary of their framing questions and invitation:
- 10 years from now, what can you imagine being at least one positive long-term adaptation or change as a result of our response to the current pandemic?
- 10 years from now, what do you think we will look back on as one of the most important, but surprising, “ripple effects” of the current crisis?
- How can we act together during this moment of uncertainty to change things for the better?
- What do you believe must change for us to be happy, healthy and secure in the future?
- 10 years from now, what action will you be most proud to have taken today?
For each possibility or idea, we’ll ask you to encourage your conversation participants to find and share a link that provides evidence that such a change is possible, an action is already underway, or that the idea already has some momentum. You can see a sample conversation here.
How we will participate using our Discourse:
- If you have an idea to share in response to one of the questions
- Start a new topic thread here on Discourse under the #projects:imaginable category, and share your idea there. (While creating the thread, also be sure to add any relevant tags onto the thread. For example, consider tagging your thread with a broad aspect of society that it fits within like #future-of-education )
- Find or create a link to a resource on the web that “provides evidence that such a change is possible, an action is already underway, or that the idea already has some momentum”. Include the link in your new thread.
- Explore the ideas we’ve generated here in the #projects:imaginable category.
- Comment/Reply to the ideas. Let’s build on them!
- If new/distinct ideas get generated through our discussions, let’s start new threads for them so that each idea has its own place to live, grow, and be easily linked to.
