This paper advances some thoughts on the future of future-oriented research in general and the use of the scenario approach in particular. First, the purpose of scenarios is briefly discussed, as seen from different points of perspective and by different users. Then, a short historical excursion is made, reviewing the use of future-oriented studies in the Netherlands in the post-war period for physical planning, economics and envrionmental policy. Finally, some conclusions are drawn and some recommendations formulated for scenario builders.
