Guests: Rebecca Ryan, Futurist, Founder, Next Generation Consulting; Gary Becker, Executive Director, Local Government Institute of Wisconsin
Do you ever wonder what the future holds for you – or your community? “The future doesn’t just happen to you. You also happen to the future,” says futurist Rebecca Ryan, who helps cities and organizations anticipate the future. Over the next three years, Ryan will facilitate “Future Region” planning sessions with nine Wisconsin regions – a region defined as at least two local units of government, key community organizations and businesses, and community members. This initiative, led by the non-partisan Local Government Institute of Wisconsin, is structured to help Wisconsin communities be proactive, collaborative, and accountable in designing ambitious and resilient futures.
On this program, Rebecca Ryan is joined by Gary Becker, LGI’s Executive Director. They describe how engaging in strategic foresight grounded in measurable data will help Wisconsin regions identify trends, expand their thinking on what is possible, and execute strategies for potential outcomes.
