A wealth of contributions provides the content of this issue of the Collective Dictionary aimed at forcing the perception of the future and, consequentially, that of the present. One of the goals of Campus in Camps is to ground learning processes in rooted experience, to weave together elements for a new kind of project able to transmit independent, personal and fertile approaches to refugee camp communities. Vision is the faculty that must be exercised for the enabling of sound and inventive initiatives.
As a result of Back to the Future seminar (18 April 2012), tales and narratives, simulations of guided tours and media conferences, spatial essays and reflections, outstanding proposals and declarations are herein collected under the term *vision.

*The Collective Dictionary is a series of publications containing definitions of concepts. The terms proposed are those considered fundamental for the understanding of the contemporary condition of Palestinian refugee camps. These words have emerged as a result of actions and active dialogs with the camp community. Written reflections on personal experiences, interviews, excursions and photographic investigations constitute the starting point for the formulation of more structured thoughts. The Collective Dictionary is both the reference and conceptual framework for all Campus in Camps projects and interventions.
