Futures cone

A tool designed by futurist, Joseph Voros, that helps to visualise and explore a range of different futures. These include: projected future (the default “business as usual” future); probable futures (likely based on current trends); plausible futures (credible based on current knowledge); possible futures (potential but uncertain); preferred futures (desired) and preposterous futures (unlikely or improbable). It is a helpful tool to demonstrate that the future is not linear.
