Although imagining the future is a key skill requirement in education for sustainable development (ESD), it is rarely taught. The French Education Ministry recently included the future in its ESD circulars and geography curriculum. We therefore developed an innovative framework for thinking about the future, featuring several different learning tools. This paper describes how schoolchildren aged 8‐12 years imagined the future of the area where they live in an interdisciplinary context (Human‐Environment Observatory) in the course of a 3-year experiment. Our framework allowed them to work on different dimensions of the future and imagine several possible futures. We discuss the need for pupils to handle complexity and uncertainty when working with the future. The ability to project themselves into the future enables pupils/citizens to make sound choices and to form opinions by comparing their own views with those of others.

Author(s): George Papachristos

This paper is motivated by the discussion in the literature about the strengths and weaknesses of the Multi-Level Perspective framework and aims to provide a response to a number of criticisms. The paper proposes retroduction as a transition research methodology that is used to identify and test social mechanisms for their explanatory power. The methodology consists in the joint use of case study and system dynamics as modeling and simulation method. The paper discusses how the two methods are used iteratively, and each one complements the strengths and counters the weaknesses of the other. The methodology has particular strengths and implications for the agenda of issues that research on future transitions to sustainability faces currently.

Healthcare represents a key issue for management in every country. A fundamental problem affects almost every healthcare system: the trade-off between the need to deliver effective healthcare services and the need to control expenses and to ensure the overall sustainability of the system. This problem is a clear expression of management complexity in healthcare systems. With the purpose of searching opportunities for reconciling standardization and differentiation in healthcare management, this work aims to explore possibilities offered by technology by investigating the criticalities and potentialities of the use of 3D printing in producing personalized medications. By adopting an organizational and managerial perspective, our exploratory study focuses on the context in which basic needs and opportunities of personalization in dosage forms mainly emerge: the stage of drug prescription and delivery processes that involve doctors, patients, and pharmacists. Obstacles, risks, and advantages of personalized medicine (PM) are discussed highlighting opportunities offered by the introduction of 3D printing technologies and conditions of success in terms of both effectiveness and cost of healthcare. Key findings lead to a possible model of synthesis in which the potential revolutionary role of drug 3D printing in pharmaceutical compounding and/or manufacturing is highlighted. A 3D printing empowered compounding pharmacy is an innovation we envision to progress toward smarter and more sustainable healthcare.
