Learn about the evolution of the site from a former gravel extraction and washing plant operation on the banks of the Bow River to a flood proofed, “complete” community with employment, housing and retail uses, served by the future LRT Green line. This tour is a unique opportunity for conference participants to see first hand, the results of the vision and challenges that led to the creation of one of the truly mixed use, green and “complete” communities in Canada.
How do we help people make better decisions about the future of their regions, cities or organizations? The Future Game allows people to practice future thinking by exploring a range of plausible future scenarios, with the results generated through their own decision-making. Teams learn how decisions that seem sensible in the short-term, may have the potential to play out in unpredictable ways. This unique process enables individuals within teams to make decisions for a hypothetical region. The game features printed maps featuring a variety of towns, rural areas, economic activities, environmental features, and social conditions. The process challenges status quo thinking and demands collaboration, teamwork and engagement.
The Future Game is an experiential learning tool that stimulates strategic future thinking and planning, and integrates external trends into local decision-making. Following the Future Game, participants discuss the experience, and learn how the game is used as a tool in stakeholder engagement for strategic planning in regions facing economic shifts.
