How can we anticipate and change the negative effects of climate change, terrorism, water scarcity, and aging populations? Causal Layered Analysis may be a method we can use to shape the future in a positive way.

In this episode, we interview Sohail Inayatullah, who developed the discipline of Causal Layered Analysis, and Ivana Milojević, who wrote the first PhD thesis on CLA 20 years ago. Ivana is also the author of The Futures of Education: Pedagogies for an Emergent World.

Members of the Peeragogy Project recently used CLA as one of several tools to support distributed learning and creativity in paper for Pattern Languages of Programs 2021. The paper will also appear in the forthcoming collected volume “CLA 3.0: 30 Years of Transformative and Critical Futures Research.”  A preprint of our article is available.

Join us to explore the future of Causal Layered Analysis, and its implications for learning!
