In these times of crisis, it has been proposed that we need to consider
wider more radical and even transformative innovation potentials to meet
future challenges. Considering this, also futures scenarios should
include more diverse interpretations within its work to aid in this
endeavour. In this thesis, this challenge is explored by combining two
innovation-rich arenas of the Creative and the Transformative that are
represented by the Creative Economy and Green Growth, in order to widen
the innovation potential. These constantly developing policy and rich
discourse areas, are seen as a drivers and engines of growth. Combined
these offer broader tools and perspectives in which to widen an
understanding of future structural transformation. This type of
transformed regime is explored through a proposed method scenario
adaptation, that intertextually reads futures workshop and scenario
results as text. that are read through innovation styles from creative
economy and green growth literature (via a method of style matrix).
Specifically, combined it is proposed that these flesh-out an
alternative scene of a future sustainable system. This produces an
adapted scenario in the form of a vignette. The results of the workshop,
focused on one set scenario that was based on a future peer to peer
energy setting. Beyond the successful renewable energy implications
already expertly analysed in a wider Neo-Carbon Energy research project.
One specific chosen scenario in its own right gives a glimpse into a
future preferable sustainable regime. The research results highlighted
themes of crisis and recovery, and important role of knowledge
spillovers. The traits and characteristics of transformative agency
reveal changes in values required to achieve an advanced future system,
but also the challenges and their essential support systems. The desire
of this study is to propose and demonstrate the method of scenario
adaptation, that can envisage alternative future transformations.
