How can dystopian futures help provide the motivation to change the ways we operate day to day? Futures Beyond Dystopia takes the view that the dominant trends in the world suggest a long-term decline into unliveable Dystopian futures. The human prospect is therefore very challenging, yet the perception of dangers and dysfunctions is the first step towards dealing with them. The motivation to avoid future dangers is matched by the human need to create plans and move forward. These twin motivations can be very powerful and help to stimulate the fields of Futures Studies and Applied Foresight. This analysis of current Futures practice is split into six sections: * The Case Against Hegemony * Expanding and Deepening a Futures Frame * Futures Studies and the Integral Agenda * Social Learning through Applied Foresight * Strategies and Outlooks * The Dialectic of Foresight and Experience. This fascinating book will stimulate anyone involved in Futures work around the world and will challenge practitioners and others to re-examine many of their assumptions, methodologies and practices.

IF one of the key roles of education is to prepare young people for the future why is the future a missng dimension in education? This book breaks new ground by bringing together three crucial concerns: the central role that images of the future play in social and cultural change; the nature of young people's hopes and fears for the future; and the need for schools to educate for a future that will be very different from the present. Part 1 looks at the role of education in turbulent tims and how students can be prepared more effectively for life in the 21st century. Part 2 describes recent research on primary and secondary pupils' views of the future and explores how hopes and fears vary by age and gender. Part 3 contains case studies of good curriculum practice and consideration of the wider implications for whole-school policy. This book should be of interest to all who work in primary, secondary and initial teacher education. It should be of particular value in shaping staff development and whole-school policy and for people working in child development, the humanities, personal and social education, citizenship and environmental education.
