Scenario Planning for an Uncertain Future
3 CM / LU Pending
Emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and machine learning have the potential to reshape cities and regions. There is still a lot we don’t know about how these trends will impact the economy and the built environment, but that doesn’t mean it’s not too early to start planning for them. Starting the conversation with the public is a crucial first step toward preparing for an uncertain future. Join experts in the civic engagement, alternative mobility, and scenario planning fields as they share their experiences and best practices in dealing with disruptive trends. Through a series of hands-on exercises that include exploratory scenarios, participants will learn how to incorporate scenario planning techniques into their civic engagement regimen and how to use cutting-edge planning tools to test drive policy options with the public before they are implemented.
