Our Own Metaphor: Tomorrow is Not for Sale
Published in: World Futures, Journal of New Paradigm Research
Edited by Alfonso Montuori and Gabrielle Donnelly.
This article is an invite to re-envision the future
together. An invitation that extends beyond that
small segment of privileged few who have commonly
dominated decision-making and paradigm.
Truly collective imaginaries would listen to and
account for successive generations, encompassing
their desires, purpose, and aspirations. Here making,
knowing and reflection is not about fortifying the
lines of defence for the end-times. Instead, a thriving
tomorrow belongs to communities able to learn
to adapt, in modesty, measured courage and sensible
reorientation of taken-for-granted priorities.
Keywords: Collective futures, connective esthetics, design anthropology, pluriverse, sensory ethnography.
