A vision, as defined in the CASI project, is a picture or an imagination of a desirable future, which can be based upon hopes and dreams – but also upon concerns and fears in relation to problems or imagined threats, which are not desirable.
The aim of the ‘Visions Bank’ is twofold:
- To openly share the results of a highly participatory citizens engagement process resulting in 50 visions on sustainable futures, with a time span of 30-40 years from now, developed during CASI citizen panels in the following 12 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia and the United Kingdom.
- To activate the vision-based track of our CASI framework for the assessment and management of sustainable innovation (CASI-F) so as to allow for a systematic mapping of critical issues (barriers, drivers, opportunities and threats) associated to SI visions, and promote a more public assessment and management of possible actions linked to such issues.
In the following link you will be able to explore the original 50 visions, add your own vision into the ‘Visions bank’ and share your views about the most critical:
