Transition to Sustainable Employment – Using Backcasting Technique for Designing Policies
AbstractThe paper presents the experience and results of a research project that used the technique of backcasting. Backcasting is a preferred method in transition management – especially with regard to sustainability issues – as it facilitates the deliberation of complex socio-economic issues and enables participants to think freely outside the realms of present cognitive frames and still find adequate, future-oriented policy answers. In the case of this particular Hungarian backcasting experiment sustainable employment scenarios were developed and policy recommendations were determined for reaching such a desired future.
