VISION & SCENARIO PLANNING
We help communities explore different futures so they can crystalize visions & coherent stories for moving forward.
Visioning is essential to translate community values into stories about the future that inspire and guide plans, policies and projects. Scenario planning is effective when there is a need to rethink what’s possible, plan for uncertainty or explore different ways to realize community goals. Both require effective outreach, facilitation and knowledge sharing techniques that bring diverse stakeholders, decision-makers and community member voices to the table. Both also promote the consideration and exchange of ideas across the integrated planning framework helping stakeholders and decision makers gain new perspectives, evaluate tradeoffs, and build shared knowledge and partnerships critical to moving towards common goals and developing a way forward.
