Second Urban Foresight Panel workshop

Thu, 2012-02-09

The second workshop of the Retrofit 2050 visioning process was held in London on 26th January. Bringing together the project’s Urban Foresight Panel, the workshop aimed to imagine, describe and appraise visions of the sustainable city in 2050, developing existing visions to explore what it would be like to live, work and govern in them. This visioning exercise was the first step in a backcasting process intended to identify the key issues for retrofitting UK city-regions between 2020 and 2050.

More information about the scenario process can be found at http://www.retrofit2050.org.uk/sites/default/files/resources/developingscenarios4.pdf, while a working paper exploring the role of visioning will follow and a report from the January workshop will be available soon.
