Dispatches from Alternate Futures: Exploratory Scenarios for Greater Philadelphia
Dispatches from Alternate Futures explores the Future of Greater Philadelphia
DVRPC released a new exploratory scenario planning report, Dispatches from Alternate Futures: Exploratory Scenarios for Greater Philadelphia, an important piece in the development of the Long-Range Plan Connections 2050. This exploratory scenario planning exercise was conducted with DVRPC’s Futures Working Group to identify a range of futures that the Greater Philadelphia region could conceivably face through the year 2050. This effort assesses uncertainty within a changing environment, aims to understand what challenges and opportunities may emerge, and sets a boundary around plausible futures considered in the Long-Range Plan’s development.
The Dispatches scenarios inform the vision for the Connections 2050 Long-Range Plan so that present-day decision making will help the region achieve desired future outcomes.
