Extreme Cities - Seen through the Manoa Scenario Planning Method

There are two events on the 24th April, both linked by the theme of the future of the city. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. The first event in the morning (09:30 for a 10:00 start) will expose participants to a structured method of thinking ahead. The Manoa Scenario Planning methodology.

The Manoa method is designed to stretch thinking about the future by allowing participants to understand "the turbulent intersection of multiple trends, and the interplay of their cascading impacts." In this session we're going to use it to generate some more "extreme scenarios" about the future city, in keeping with the theme of the day.

For those familiar with Futures Thinking this session will also be a hands-on opportunity to learn this scenario building method.

The session will be led by Wendy Schultz, with support from Andrew Curry, from the Association of Professional Futurists.

The event is hosted by ARUP Foresight + Research + Innovation at ARUP 8 Fitzroy Street, London W1T4BQ United Kingdom.  Directions
