Abstract

Following a very interesting discussion during and after the Final MC in Brussels this week, We offer you some thoughts of guidance on how you might take account of the Action in your publications that are COSTA22-inspired. We refer in particular to the planned books and special editions.

The key idea from COSTA22 was a modernisation of methodology in support of the wider use of foresight methods amongst a diversity of contexts.

The aphorism <<from Oracles to Dialogue>> underlies an overt recognition of the socially constructed nature of <<knowledge about the future>> and the reflexivity that operates in constructing meaning from this knowledge.

The guidance note takes this discussion further.
