Backcasting provides one preferred option from a number of future possibilities, and a series of ways that the desired endpoint can be achieved
  • Define future goals and objectives, projecting 25-50 years into the future. Specify the scenario by analysing the technological and physical characteristics of a path that would lead towards the specified goals.

Brainstorm ways this desired endpoint can be achieved, working backwards to the present.”
