Projects per year
The Future Newspaper tool is designed for community members and citizen science practitioners wanting to start their own project and is designed to be used at the end of a citizen science project. The Future Newspaper methods helps the creative reflection process by asking participants to imagine a variety of desirable futures. Then, by working backwards from those visions, participants can articulate the conditions, resources, stakeholders and events which might help lead to those outcomes. These can then become discussion points which the community can vote on to create actions and interventions.
This page includes a Future Newspaper guidance document which outlines the tool, the steps, resources needed and useful links that can explain the process of using the toolkit yourself. The page also includes a Future Newspaper canvas to be used in conducting this activity.
