In this report, scenarios are used to explore ethical implications of Technologies whose development and application are not completely realised or finished, and whose potential lies in the future. [...], engaging stakeholders’ awareness and values. The report outlines a multi-stage, multi-stakeholder methodology applied in climate engineering, digital extended reality, and neurotechnologies. Scenarios stimulate reflections, while experts and citizens contribute their perspectives. Three stages involve scenario creation, expert enrichment, and citizen enrichment via game-based methodology and workshops. Findings are categorized by STEEPV dimensions, guiding Ethical guidelines collect general or specific principles [...] More for each A technology family is a collection of technologies that share techniques that have common goals [...]. Addressing equity, reliability, and environmental sustainability, the report adds to the empirical study of ethical concerns at the intersection of Foresight is a systematic, participatory, future-intelligence-gathering and medium-to-long-term vision-building process [...] and ethical assessment of emerging technologies.
