Finding our way to the future : directions for a city of opportunity
McGowan, Lee & Russo, Heidi (2007) Finding our way to the future : directions for a city of opportunity. Journal of Futures Studies, 12(1), pp. 131-144.
This Australian case study of futures methodologies in local government explores the development and implementation of the Logan 2026 City Directions project. As an innovative approach to strategic planning, and forming the city visioning umbrella for the Strategic Planning and Performance Management Framework of Council, Logan 2026 City Directions has facilitated greater engagement with the community and represents an opportunity for Council to explore and build on the organisation's foresight capacity and to enhance internal communications within the organisation. One significant by-product has been ongoing dialogue and actions of the workshop groups in Council seeking to address such issues as climate change.
