Abstract: This article is an invite to re-envision the future together. An invitation that extends beyond that small segment of privileged few who have commonly dominated decision-making and paradigm. Truly collective imaginaries would listen to and account for successive generations, encompassing their desires, purpose, and aspirations. Here making, knowing and reflection is not about fortifying the lines of defence for the end-times. Instead, a thriving tomorrow belongs to communities able to learn to adapt, in modesty, measured courage and sensible reorientation of taken-for-granted priorities.
