What is Infinite Futures? Since 1980, my futures work has focussed on facilitating futures fluency: helping groups of people explore -- and celebrate! -- the myriad possibilities that change creates. This focus on process, rather than output per se, has resulted in over a decade of participatory futures work: designing sea-level-rise/environmental management workshops for leaders in the Republic of the Marshall Islands; helping U.S. court administrators envision the future of justice; exploring alternative futures for human endeavours in space with participants at the International Space University; and building alternative scenarios for dental health policy in Great Britain. While such projects required every aspect of futures research -- identifying emerging issues of change, imagining the alternative futures arising from various trends, envisioning preferred futures as goals, planning strategies to create those visions, and monitoring progress towards the vision -- my focus, and the focus of Infinite Futures, is on workshop design, facilitation, and documentation.
