  • Volume 1/2 A new beginning for the future of futuring in New Zealand
    • Abstract: Curtis, Yvonne Before our workshop on 6 March, I had been preparing myself to write a valedictory - a last hurrah - and declare that the New Zealand Futures Trust had done its dash. Instead I write of success - and am strangely finding it harder than I had foreseen. The March 6th workshop ticked more outcome boxes than I thought would be possible.

  • Volume 1/2 The future of New Zealand's social contract
    • Abstract: Cunningham, Chris Every four years the NZ Treasury is required to advise the government on New Zealand's Long Term Fiscal Future. The Treasury produces and publishes a formal statement and the third of these statements is due this year, 2013. This statement captures an exercise of forecasting the 'fiscal future track' for the next forty years, to inform and influence the decisions that governments may make. I have had the pleasure of being involved in an advisory panel that has debated many of the issues in front of the officials who are tasked with producing the statement. And while the panel will not write the statement, we nonetheless have participated in the process by providing a wide range of views for discussion and debate.

  • Volume 1/2 Why we celebrate? From the wicked witch is dead to Mankinis
    • Abstract: Yeoman, Ian Why did some people want to celebrate Mrs Thatcher's death? In many parts of the UK there were street parties and the Wizard of Oz song 'Ding Dong: The Wicked Witch is Dead' was a chart hit. Putting aside your political views about Margaret Thatcher. The world today celebrates everything. It's called 'Everyday Exceptional' - the consumers desire for occasion, to seek more reasons to endorse moments of fun and legitimise indulgent experiences. Basically we like to celebrate. As we are living longer there will be more birthdays, wedding anniversaries and wakes. There are more students than ever and thus more graduation ceremonies. On the whole, consumers seem to welcome this idea of infusing more life and joy into their days, from emotional. Humans intrinsically seek celebration. More than a novelty, celebration makes the air lighter, people feel happier because celebration allows the weight and stress of their world to be momentarily lifted.

My most recent prompt was listening to Dr Jim Dator, Professor and Director of the Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies, Department of Political Science, University of Hawaii at Manoa. He was Skyping to our "Thinking Futures" workshop, and defined "The Unholy Trinity plus One" of factors which are now the new normal in futures scenarios. ("Trinity" because they can be described separately but are inseparable.)

The workshop is one of a number of regional projects being undertaken by the International Migration Institute (IMI) to map "Global Migration Futures: Towards a Comprehensive Perspective." The project is being supported by many international governments, academic and NGOs involved in migration issues.

    • Abstract: Capable NZ Tertiary education has traditionally been about teaching an "off-the-shelf" course, focusing on general skills and knowledge in a particular discipline. But this model does not work for all learners and is not always helpful for employers in rapidly-evolving work environments. So, why not turn the traditional tertiary education concept on its head and start with employers/organisations and learners'

  • Volume 4 Issue 2009 - Climate Change and Migration
    • Abstract: Curtis, Yvonne At the recent three day Conference 'Pathways, Circuits and Crossroads: International Migration in Uncertain Times' (2-4 November 2009, Te Papa) the final afternoon was devoted to exploring the theme of 'Climate change and migration'. This is an issue that is getting some publicity at present and there are very differing accounts about the likely impacts for the long-term future. They vary from very frightening scenarios of being overwhelmed by masses of frantic people and loss of land, to those that maintain there is no such thing as climate change so there is no issue to address. The keynote address and various research papers given in the session gave a much more balanced and intimate view of possibilities that are a more reassuring base for policy making. It was also useful to hear first hand accounts from some of the Pacific Islands as in the bigger picture scenario models the South Pacific Islands tend to be invisible (too small for the grid blocks used). The excerpt below from a recent address given earlier this year, by Professor Richard Bedford, is good example of some of the future possibilities explored during the conference. Professor Bedford is a specialist in migration studies and, since the mid-1960s, he has been researching processes of population movement in the Asia-Pacific region.

  • Volume 3 Issue 2007 - Defining a Role for Sustainable Consumption
           Initiatives in New Zealand
    • Abstract: Curtis, Yvonne As Morgan Williams finishes his term as the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, it is a good time to reflect on some of the changes in environmental issues during his ten year term. For example, the main message I got from one of Morgan's first presentations was a caution that went with his comments about recycling. Ten years ago it was gaining popular support as the main way we could become a 'sustainable' community. Morgan pointed out that in extolling the virtues of recycling, we needed to remember the real goal was to learn to do more with less. Ten years on I think the caution is still the same. Although 'recycling' is now part of everyday life, I have not noticed any reduction in consumption or many people seriously looking at the lifetime or durability of products as criteria when considering alternative purchases.
