    • Abstract: Bridgman, Todd Moments of crisis provide valuable learning opportunities. In our attempts to overcome a crisis, we can gain insight into past events and a deeper understanding of the present. Perhaps most importantly, a crisis provides an opportunity to reflect on the future, by questioning what we had previously taken for granted.

    • Abstract: Ames, Steven The recovery from urban disasters generally progresses in three phases, rescue, recovery and rebuilding.

It is suggested that a world monetary authority, supported by a commodity reserve standard, would help stabilise commodity prices and allow local central banks to regulate their monetary systems. The issue is discussed in the context of the role of money as an intermediary in economic life.

  • Volume 1 Continuity through change: Social research in a constrained
           funding environment
    • Abstract: Bedford, Richard The Association of Social Science Researchers (ASSR) is a survivor. In 2011 it is celebrating 30 years of activity. I'm not sure there are many other social science research networks that have such duration, aside from professional discipline-based societies like the NZ Geographical Society and the Population Association of New Zealand and a very small number of organisations like the New Zealand Futures Trust. Several of the major social science research networks that were active a year or two ago have disappeared after a short-lived existence, such as the cross-government Social Policy Evaluation and Research (SPEaR) Committee and the Building Research Capability in the Social Sciences (BRCSS) Network, or have been effectively disbanded through failure to appoint new members (e.g. the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO's Social Science Sub-Commission).

  • Volume 1 A school fit for the future: A 21st century, UX approach to
           learning design
    • Abstract: Pride, Stephanie I had the privilege of a tour round Amesbury School this morning with Urs Cunningham, one of the Associate Principals. Amesbury is a new primary school for years 1-6 on the edge of Churton Park, a northern suburb of Wellington. It is very much a 'school of the future', not just because it has been built to cater for future need - a good proportion of the households it will serve and children who will learn there do not exist yet - but it is putting 21st century modes at the heart of its teaching and learning practice. Everything in the building design and equipment is geared to provide complete flexibility in the use of spaces and surfaces, from sliding partitions to writeable walls and windows, to furniture that can be used any way up, to robust wifi throughout the whole building. This is enabling the teachers and students to explore together the almost limitless combinations and find what set up works best for each element of learning that goes on through the day.

  • Volume 1 Lighting - from candles to LEDs
    • Abstract: Curtis, Neil Over the last 130 years significant improvements in lighting technology have improved human living conditions in the "developed" world. The extension of natural daylight hours for our homes, work-places and environment, with the change from candles to oil-lamps to electrical lighting has made an enormous difference to peoples' lives, and improving lighting contributes significantly to improving human welfare in "developing" regions.

    • Abstract: Dwyer, Trisha In a world where adventure tourism provides the loudest voice and the best pictures, some of us need to be reminded of the important role of cultural tourism. Reading Trisha Dwyer's article below will remind the readers of our wonderful history of guided tourism and international acclaim granted to our most famous guides - Sophia Hinerangi and Maggie Makareti Papakura. But it's Trisha's own explanation "that for the next generation there will be new perspectives on the importance and relevance of Maori cultural heritage and its place, not only in New Zealand but in the wider world." As Trisha puts it "tomorrow's history and understanding of Maori cultural heritage is yet to be shared".

Some things, which are present in finite amounts, such as coal, oil or natural gas, will eventually become exhausted as we "use them up". Chemical elements, in contrast, cannot be "used up", only "redistributed".

  • Volume 1/2 From the ground up
    • Abstract: Krumdieck, Susan Everyone knows that we have had a series of earthquakes in Christchurch. There was a lot of damage, and a huge amount of work has been done to deconstruct unsafe buildings. Two years ago more than 40,000 people had their say about their vision for a future Christchurch. In the previous decade the region had been through the Urban Development Strategy process, and the people were pretty clear about their desire to stop urban sprawl. This hasn't changed due to destruction. We want a sustainable city. We want a high density CBD with lots of people living down town. We want urban villages around the rest of the urban form connected with each other through development corridors served by electric trams. We want parks and places and we want to rebuild as much of our historical character as we possibly can.

  • Volume 1/2 The future of music festivals
    • Abstract: Yeoman, Ian Festivals are an important sphere of the experience economy. Technology advancement has changed consumer behaviour to the point that consumers are no longer bored, as they play whether they are waiting in a queue or students supposedly listening to a lecture. Tweeting, tagging and posting are mainstream words in the English language as consumers update profiles and tell their friends in real time. As a consequence, how does technology and play intertwine and what does it mean for the music festival experience? Using the process of scenario planning, Dr Ian Yeoman and a NZ Futures Trust board member gave a professional lecture at the European Tourism Futures Institute on the topic. The lecture paints a picture of the future using Glastonbury Festival as an example for discussion. Glastonbury Festival is the largest Greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world with over 170,000 people attending the festival in 2012.

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.

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.)

    • Abstract: Curtis, Yvonne; Bedford, Richard In the last Future Times I reported that I had been involved in an international futures four day workshop developing possible scenarios for migration in the Pacific Region. 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."
