MDI is carrying out a prospective study for the Regional Council of South Karelia which includes four scenario options and their contingency plans. In addition, a common vision for the region’s actors up to 2040 will also be created. The work will be carried out as an interactive process, including five large-scale workshops, three of which will focus on the drivers of change, knowledge and collaboration in the province. The work is based on futures research methodology (e.g. futures table, fore- and back casting) and interaction methods that enhance mutual understanding, such as the Timeout-method (Sitra). The work will be completed by the end of May 2020.
