This animation looks at scenarios for the future of Newcastle upon Tyne over the next 50 years.
As part of the project we worked with cities that are developing their own future-focused ideas or ‘city visions’.
The West Midlands is no stranger to ‘futures’ work. In 2006, Forum for the Future working with Sustainability West Midlands, wrote the 'West Midlands Futures: Drivers of change affecting the West Midlands' report.
What is your vision of Cambridge in 2065? This is the question being asked by 'Visions of Cambridge in 2065', one of 6 city case studies supported by the Foresight Future of Cities project.
July 2015 saw the publication of the 'Newcastle City Futures 2065' report.

Although Reading is not yet officially a ‘city’ it forms part of one of the most economically vibrant and connected urban areas in the UK.
As part of our evidence-gathering, the lead expert group and project team has engaged with a number of UK cities to hear directly from them about their views on the future.
