Wild Card's description 
Personal futures planning toolkits with “success stories” (e.g. how-to guides and case studies from experts and celebrities) become widely available and used. Social movements emerge, with individuals and civil society groups making medium-to-long-term decisions aimed at shaping their future. Non-fatalistic and proactive attitudes towards change (also promoted in life-long learning programmes) lead to a global debate about the actual role and usefulness of traditional established religion and self-help groups. In effect, a new “do-it-yourself” (DIY) futures movement overtakes organised religious groups, though some are willing to adapt, assimilate, and offer new “brands” of such techniques themselves.
