Day Two: Three Horizons Workshop

During the first day, current assumptions or themes that were the most challenged by emerging changes in technology and society were identified.  Day two began to dig deeper into creating possible Futures that would identify and advance pathways to a more inclusive future for people with disabilities.  The day was divided into three “Horizons” – or what the future might look like if it were inclusive of all citizens.  The framework looked at assumptions, paradigms, values, trends, and innovations as presumed life cycles.  Horizon One included current events and strong trends; basically covering the paper presentations from day one.  Day two participants were asked to focus on overturning ‘business as usual’ thinking.
