Exploring the Possibility of Linking and Incorporating Future Design in Backcasting and Scenario Planning
- Raja Rajendra Timilsina, Yoshinori Nakagawa, Koji Kotani
We consider this article as a concept paper for the special issue of “Designing Sustainable Future Societies,” building on a literature review and author’s conceptual framework. Thus, our ideas and concepts suggest some potential benefits from incorporating FD into backcasting and scenario planning, further inducing people to be future-oriented and/or sustainable in terms of strategy making. We finally demonstrate some examples of FD practices and illustrative ideas of FD incorporation, remarking on possible avenues for future research.
