Exploring Nesta’s Participatory Futures Report

Join IPAA and the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources for this Innovation Month event on participatory futures.

In late 2019, global innovation think-tank Nesta published Our Futures: By the people, for the people – a practical guide to ‘doing’ participatory futures.

Participatory futures is about moving beyond traditional public engagement, to help people and communities develop a collective image of the future they want. This helps us all make better, more informed decisions today. In this seminar, Jose Ramos, Director at Action Foresight and co-author of the Nesta report, will present the guide and discuss how governments, funders, citizens and society can work together to create more inclusive futures for our communities.

Jose's presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with various future-focused representatives from the APS and other sectors to discuss participatory futures in an Australian context. This event is run as part of Innovation Month 2020: 'delivering differently'.
