Roadmapping the Future:  

  • Using scrappy prototypes to drive towards global sustainability goals in a more rapid, concrete, localized way. Among the provocations in the article is the idea that a more ad-hoc and participatory style of building can help to avoid the negatives of a global, top-down approach (erasure of minority cultures, prescriptive technocratic values that ignore the complexity of human life, etc): "Transformed into an open culture, prototyping instead becomes a convivial activity for community building and alliance formation. This means bringing people together around a shared concern, and exploring new norms and mobilising relationships through prototypes; building alliances for new institutions more than portable innovations; negotiating political programmes and managing conflicts over social changes more than managing innovation; mapping pathways for dynamic, adaptable routines rather than rolling out standard models."
