The future review and scenarios support the preparation of the provincial programme of Central Ostrobothnia

MDI supported the Central Ostrobothnia region in the preparation of their future review and scenarios exercise up to the year of 2040. The work included a statistical survey, current corona signals and identification of  the main future trends pertaining to the Central Ostrobothnia region. In addition, the future prospects and role of the regional association were also discussed. The work included sparring sessions and two participatory workshops. 

Based on the review, four scenarios emerged with each having both positive and negative features. In addition, the work outlined the future actions that need to be taken. In Central Ostrobothnia, the work will be used as a background support element in the preparation of both the provincial strategy 2040 and the provincial programme 2022–2025 during this year.
