Forecasting, Foresight, and Anticipation are considered to be the basic components of Futures Studies. Forecasting deals with data extrapolation; Foresight with the visualization of possible futures; and Anticipation with the translation of their outcomes into action. The overall structure of Futures Studies comprises the differences between megatrend and explo- ration, risk and uncertainty, and complicated- ness and complexity. Finally, the idea of Futures Literacy is introduced.

Abstract

Forecasting, Foresight, and Anticipation are considered to be the basic components of Futures Studies. Forecasting deals with data extrapolation; Foresight with the visualization of possible futures; and Anticipation with the translation of their outcomes into action. The overall structure of Futures Studies comprises the differences between megatrend and explo- ration, risk and uncertainty, and complicated- ness and complexity. Finally, the idea of Futures Literacy is introduced.
