Futures scenarios are used extensively by the Foresight programme, which looks beyond commercial horizons to identify potential opportunities from new science and technologies. Foresight also identifies actions to help realise those opportunities. Following this model, four alternative futures for the UK from 2010 to 2050 were developed for the Foresight Tackling Obesities: Future Choices project. The expertise, experience and perspectives of an unusually wide range of stakeholders were integrated in an iterative process over six months in 2006. During three workshops and a number of smaller group meetings, 29 drivers for change were identified and two core uncertainties agreed as the framework for the four scenarios. The scenario storylines were then developed and refined.
