Details for «Future Search»

A Future Search conference is a way for a community or organisation to create a shared vision for its future. It engages around 60 to 80 participants, in groups of 8 (interest, stakeholders, and mixed groups), who take part in a highly structured process lasting ideally two and a half days. It is usually used for local communities to find common goals and ways of action in a deadlocked situation. It brings people from all walks of life into one conversation – those with resources (information and knowledge), expertise, formal authority and the ability to act and those with need (those who are affected by the workshop results).

The first step is to create a conversation in which participants talk about their past, present and desired future in order to achieve common ground among all participants. Only then do they make concrete action plans. There are five key phases of the workshop programme, namely: a focus on the past; a focus on the present; visioning - future scenarios; common ground and action planning. Each phase has its own tasks.
