First meeting of the Urban Foresight Panel

Fri, 2011-10-28

The RETROFIT 2050 Urban Foresight Panel – a group of leading experts from industry, academia, government and civil society organisations - met at the Royal Society, London on October 6th 2011 for the first of three participatory scenario workshops. The workshop process will produce a set of contextual scenarios for the systemic urban retrofitting of core UK city regions. These scenarios will then be tested and evaluated through the project’s detailed modelling and case-study research in Greater Manchester and Cardiff/SE Wales.

An overview of the Retrofit 2050 scenario building framework is available as a project working paper. A report from the October workshop will be published shortly.
