Futures Exercise with N Square and the School of International Futures

This workshop with N Square and the School of International Futures introduces participants to Futures Wheels, an exploratory futures tool, and how it can be applied to nuclear issues. This is a pilot of a participatory exercise that the School of International Futures hopes will be useful with other cross-sections of the nuclear community or networks of emerging leaders. It will also enrich the ongoing horizon scanning effort led by N Square.
