Stuart Candy
USC Berggruen Fellow

Everyone wonders and worries about the world to come. But too rarely do we have the chance to do so systematically, creatively, and socially. This session considers some approaches to thinking about possible futures that may be useful for your scholarship, activism, and everyday life.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center on Science, Technology, and Public Life, the Berggruen Institute, and Media as SocioTechnical Systems (MASTS).

Stuart Candy (@futuryst) is a pioneer of experiential futures, a collection of practices designed to amplify collective imagination, deliberation, and social foresight. Writer of The Sceptical Futuryst blog, co-creator of The Thing From The Future card game, and co-editor of the two-volume collection Design and Futures, he has introduced foresight methods to design practitioners and students worldwide, and helped to grow the capacity of organizations including the BBC, World Economic Forum, United Nations Development Programme, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, US Conference of Mayors, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Dr. Candy is currently Associate Professor in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University and a Berggruen Fellow in the USC Dornsife Center on Science, Technology and Public Life.
