HOW DID WE DO THIS?
24 analytical sessions
We have analyzed trends and statistical data. We used innovative model analysis of the FORMAT methodology to collect data and create development models that formed the basis for creating development scenarios. It was used for the first time in urban research.
We have established a team of local experts who know in detail and in practice the various aspects of reality that make up the functioning of Konin. It was them who, based on the data and analyzes we collected, created scenarios for the development of the city during three workshop rounds.
over 4 000 people
We have involved a wide range of Konin residents, entrepreneurs, youth, seniors and representatives of public administration in consultations. Numerous meetings, workshops and talks gave the opportunity to share their visions of the city’s development and significantly influence the final shape of the scenarios.

Visions of the city in 35 years
As a result of analyzes and debates, scenarios of the future were created – from pessimistic, to the most probable, to the most optimistic one. They can become the basis for developing short-term policies, milestones, strategic documents or revitalization plans.
Konin2050 is the first broad foresight project of that kind for a medium city in Poland. The urban foresight model developed by the Urban Workshop allowed to extract from this method additional elicitable aspects and building social capital.
The Foresight report is an element that completes and also opens the process. The next 35 years is the period during which changes will lead to the final vision of the city in 2050. With specific clear objectives and potential threats in the long-term perspective, authorities can lead a conscious and responsible city development policy.
