Dublin City Foresight: a Scenario Approach
Branagh, Sinead
As we begin a new Millennium, a subtle and positive shift is occurring in all segments of society: an increased emphasis on the future – what it might look like, what challenges and opportunities it might present, and in what ways we might be able to respond most positively. It is emerging at a time of national reflection for organisations and individuals alike – and perhaps none too soon as changes in our social fabric, resource base, business and political environments, and perhaps most importantly, the pace and extent of changes in science and technology, launch us into exciting but uncertain territory in the 21st century. Scenario Planning has been widely used by decision-makers in business, industry and government as a technique to learn about the future before it happens. This paper examines Scenario Planning with the aim of presenting the technique as one relevant to the study of future city planning. A scenario Planning Exercise was completed using Dublin City as a case study, and the step by step process of scenario building evaluated.
