Ask a Futurist

You have questions about the future, a futurist may have answers

The APF provides a forum for the public to ask questions about futurists, futures studies, or foresight in general. Please first see our FAQs, and feel free to post any questions you have in the comments below.

The website administrator will send your question to a futurist who will respond directly in the comments. Remember to subscribe to your post. Then you may receive notification when a reply has been posted.

You may also comment on existing questions and answers by clicking reply to a particular comment. Please keep in mind that the comments may be filled with posts from those outside the APF, and not all answers should be interpreted as answers from an APF member.

This forum is intended to provide general responses to any questions about possible futures, trends, or just clarification about what a futurist does. Answers and responses indicate only one futurist’s opinion and do not necessarily represent the entire organization.

The Ask a Futurist forum is a pilot project, and we would appreciate your feedback by clicking this link.
