This chapter provides another example of the kind of tools or heuristics that can be deployed in designing and implementing Futures Literacy Labs and other collective intelligence knowledge creation processes. In late 2013 a two-year collective intelligence knowledge creation process began in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, under the title ‘Schöne Aussichten – Forum für Frankfurt’ (Positive Futures – Forum for Frankfurt). The process used four core elements: dialogue, visions, indicators and actions. Indicators were published in mid-2015 (Bergheim, 2015). It was an experiment influenced by the global wellbeing movement and with plenty of room for the emergence of new insights and actions. The future was integrated explicitly in this knowledge creation process by asking about changes that citizens would like to see in the future and by formulating visions for the year 2030.
