Where Do You Stand?

A self-reflection game to kick-start the foresight process

What is it?

A stand-up game that involves participants in a futures discussion by asking them to position themselves in the future. It invites participants to physically stand on two axes: one about a bleak or bright future and another about our sense of agency in the future.

Use it to

  • Get participants in the right mindset at the start of a foresight workshop
  • Enhance participants’ self-awareness of their relationship with the future


Originally inspired by the book “The Image of the Future” (1961) by Fred Polak
