This paper introduces a new futures method, Scenario Art, which involves the use of visual representations of future scenarios to support decision-making towards sustainable development. Based on preliminary investigations it is proposed that Scenario Art has the capacity to increase a persons level of empathy, creativity and responsiveness to risk; and on this basis has great potential to facilitate decision-making processes and outcomes that demonstrate sustainable thinking. To illustrate the application and support the proposed value of Scenario Art an overview of a recent futures workshop, which applied the new method, is provided. This paper aims to inspire the further development and utilisation of Scenario Art.
