This paper introduces the action scenario framework and its application in the participatory foresight process. Moreover, the Scenario Filter Model (SFM) and its possibilities to produce future oriented service innovations and skill requirements are introduced. The scenario filter model (SFM) is a tool to generate a comprehensive set of scenarios and also to select ideas for further development and commercialization. The advantage of the SFM it that it combines three different perspectives so called filters: market, society and technology. The SFM also supports strategic decision making by helping e.g. in the timing of strategic actions. The research also gives new insights for services in the fields of citizen wellbeing and security by introducing four alternative scenarios and some examples of future service concepts which were created during this foresight process.
