FUTURE FORCES FOR AN EQUITABLE REGION

In 2019 DVRPC embarked on a visioning exercise called Future Forces. This paper is written by the Fall 2019 Sustainable Cities course at Temple University with the goal of examining selected forces and focusing on strategies to promote equity. In addition to some of the Future Forces outlined, our class added biodiversity to the conversation. Below, please find our assessment of how trends will impact the region as well as policy recommendations based on current research and projections.
