Abstrakt

Urgent and consequential issues related to the climate crisis are driving forth research on how to facilitate the emergence of sustainable futures. Strategising can be considered as a key competency for steering current practices from unsustainable paths towards sustainable futures; however, it remains underexplored how it can be animated or supported. In this paper, strategising is conceptualised according to four elements: Envisioning alternative futures, interacting reflectively, thinking divergently, and adopting a systems perspective. The paper draws from five research-through-design experiments and explores the potential of design-driven futuring, that is, those approaches that integrate design and futuring methods and tools, to nurture strategising across its four elements. Our empirical findings suggest that design-driven futuring supports strategising for sustainable futures by fostering (1) creative spaces for immersion, (2) encounters for intra- and interpersonal reflections and (3) mutual understanding through the visuality of design.
