Economic Adjustment and High Level Community Engagement – USA, Canada and Europe

Vision Edina (USA)

Future iQ Partners is working, with the City of Edina on a long term, high level community visioning and foresight project entitled ‘Vision Edina’. This project is using a scenario based planning framework, and is engaging approximately one thousand citizens about future trends, challenges and the evolution of the City. The outcome will be a data-driven community vision that will inform the City's future comprehensive plans.

Defense Industry Adjustment (USA)

The Fox River Valley region, Eastern Wisconsin, USA has received a major Dept of Defense grant to support economic adjustment, in response to cuts in defense contracts with local manufacturers, resulting in significant job layoffs and economic impacts.

This project encompasses the economic and workforce development ‘eco-system’ across the region.
