Accelerating sustainability transitions requires imagination and creativity to concretise desirable futures narratives. For this purpose, Hellon designed the Sustainable Futures Game that connects societal sustainability goals with everyday organisational contexts to help build organisations’ capacities for imagining alternative futures.
The purpose is to help players co-imagine a desirable future state of a commonly decided city in 2030 through fictional storytelling and design prompts and then back cast ways to tackle critical challenges to reach the co-narrated future. The game allows players from diverse backgrounds co-create desirable future scenarios free from the specific context of their organization’s current ambitions, thus, providing a holistic societal outlook to the future. The game can be played as a physical or digital board game.
