This is a presentation I made to explain what the Future envisioning breakfasts are, and what we are trying to achieve.
We are trying to develope a specific methodology to incentivize a thinking process that will allow participants to think about different visions of the future in terms of the main elements of their sector and their requirements from the urban environment.
The brainstorm will help our team to collect ideas on tools and methods to use with participants.

This activities are a part of the Liveable Cities project.
