Old Main Page
Welcome to the open community on scenario thinking. ScenarioThinking.org is the open space where we can publish scenarios, reflect on the process, share resources in an democratic, inclusive and continuous manner. ScenarioThinking.org is currently sponsored by the DTN, which since 1996 has been publishing scenarios online to grow the public discourse in this space. The philosophy is that we all benefit by sharing our thinking about this unique 30 year old process.
Material on this site is published under the creative commons licence and may be shared and used freely, as long as they cite the source. We encourage everybody to use scenario thinking, to aid more rational and long-term thinking in our organisations and institutions.

This is the place to keep each other posted on Coming Events that have something to do with scenarios or are interesting for people involved in scenario's or interested in scenario thinking and scenario processes.
The Knowledge Pages are pages where you can find and leave everything that has to do with knowledge about scenarios and scenario processes. Self written texts, articles, videos, presentations and more. In short, this is the place to get to know everything about scenarios and share what you always wanted to know.
What is Scenario Thinking?
Documents, presentations, articles and more on what scenario thinking is. Here you will find for example a presentation about the process of building a scenario.
Thoughts about scenario processes
Here we go a bit deeper into the subject of scenarios. Thoughts on the objective of scenario thinking, why it should or shouldn't work and new insights into the process and it effects.
A section for interviews on scenario thinking and other future processes. Here video, audio and text interviews can be found and left.
In the sections below many different resources can be found on scenario processes. From a portal full of interesting links to a database full of interesting scenarios.
Scenario Thinking Portal
The Scenario Thinking Portal is the place where we can share and access the best resources on the web on anything that has to do with scenario thinking. Including links to scenario resource pages, example scenarios, sources of change and anything you can come up with and have some interesting links to.
We already have many Driving Forces available here. Have a look at them, use them for your own purposes and add driving forces you have identified yourself. This way we will have a database of driving forces that allows us quick insight on important developments. We have driving forces that explore the political, social, economic, environmental and economical changes in the world. Feel free to add another category.
This is the page for Example Scenarios. Through those scenario's we can learn from each other through each other’s work. Next to professional scenarios a large database of scenarios by students from all over the world can be found here.
Things you heard about but didn't think existed, things you couldn't even imagine. On this page with Scientific Surprises you will see that part of what you thought of as future is already here.
