[Online] Media Discourse Foresight Guide – Launch Event
09 November at 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Foresight – or future thinking – provides scope for people to think about the future and use this to model and respond to potential prospective circumstances.
In an ever-changing world, it asks us to think about our future, what challenges are on the horizon, and how we can address them to achieve shared outcomes. The media is both a window into, and a shaper of the ideologies and behaviours of society, and through looking at the discourses within it we can identify signals about our future.
About the event
This event launches a Guide created on the EUARENAS project that combines media discourse analysis with future-thinking approaches. Through a series of practical activities and step-by-step instructions, the Guide enables practitioners from different sectors to use media discourses as source material for signals about our future and to explore the drivers of change in society.
At this event, we will talk you through the different elements of the Guide, where to access it and its associated resources and answer your questions on working with people and communities in practically applied foresight work.
Who is it for?
This event is open to anyone living or working in the UK and Europe, interested in delivering ‘future-thinking’ and ‘foresight’ activities in practical ways. We think the guide would be particularly useful for:
- applied and participatory researchers
- public service workers
- civil society actors
- co-production facilitators
- community organisers
