CST Visioning Workshop Experience

At an ‘Anthropocene Visioning Workshop’ hosted by the CST in November 2016, a diverse group of key thinkers in southern Africa − including artists, social entrepreneurs, researchers, and policy-makers, was convened to engage in a visioning process to scope a range of plausible “good” futures based on perspectives from a variety of regional actors. This workshop built on the Seeds of Good Anthropocenes collaboration, which is an effort led by the Stockholm Resilience Centre in Sweden, McGill University in Canada, and Stellenbosch University that seeks to counterbalance dystopic visions of the future that may be inhibiting our collective ability to move creatively towards a positive trajectory for the Earth and humanity.
