B: Regional Planning - Future Search (Half Day)

This session engages the participants in an exercise to place themselves and their communities in a temporal context. Using participant-constructed wall displays and facilitation by trained staff, the participants will collaboratively develop a timeline for their community, including both public and personal events, to show how the community arose and developed to the present day, what the salient characteristics of the community are today, and the desired futures envisioned by participants for themselves and the community. In this process, the world café process will alternate with integrated sessions to allow the participants to interact broadly and deeply with one another so as to develop shared insights.
