Economy League sponsors community roundtables on region’s future

The Economy League of Greater Philadelphia is  holding a series of roundtables on the future of the Southeastern Pennsylvania region with leaders from the business, civic and government communities in July.

At the roundtables, diverse groups of the region’s leaders will reflect on the regional implications of the four “futures” presented in the Economy League’s recent 2026: Future Histories of Greater Philadelphia report. The culmination of months of intensive collaboration with regional stakeholders, the report presents four stories describing very different, but very possible, ways that national and global forces could influence Greater Philadelphia by the year 2026.

Roundtable participants discuss these four possible futures and work to identify the priority regional issues that we must focus on no matter which future comes to pass. These conversations will help in the development of a short list of long-term strategic priorities that will become the focus of the League’s World Class Greater Philadelphia initiative after their announcement later this year.

The United Ways of the Delaware Valley will sponsor one of the roundtables on Tuesday, July 19th from 8-10pm at United Way, 1709 Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. To register, go here.

Another roundtable will be held on Thursday, July 7th from 8-10am at Temple’s Fox School of Business (register here.
