About PLANNING2050

PLANNING2050 is an initiative that evaluates current planning practices, purposefully searching for solutions that are based on data-analytics and systems thinking.

Through the generation of commitments, and the monitoring of these through time, we aim to better understand the interconnectedness of systems, and the unintended consequences of current planning practices.

Through a systems planning approach, and data analytics, PLANNING2050 aims to transform planning practice by reporting, creating, monitoring, and maintaining a database of actionable strategies that will be successful, scalable and/or replicable.
