Date:

Location: 
Online

This is the first webinar in a series presenting the 2018 study on MSP for Blue Growth. More information on the study and webinar series can be found here. 

Webinar: 7 November 2018, 16:00 CET

The purpose of the Visions Handbook is to assist planners in developing a maritime vision or a strategy, as well as assisting those who wish to prepare the terms of reference for facilitating a vision process. The handbook provides quick and easy access to relevant tools and methods, building on lessons learnt from vision development processes across Europe. It indicates a range of possibilities for working with visions, showcasing options and ideas, rather than being prescriptive.

The presentation will cover different tools and methods that can be used for developing a vision, different formats a vision making process could result in, and discuss usefulness of such processes and their outputs for MSP. The presentation will also answer some practical questions including: 
•    How to conduct background research for the vision development process, including analysis of the existing policy context and future trends in maritime sectors?
•    When is it useful to develop scenarios or forecasts and how can they be developed?
•    What are the benefits of involving stakeholders and what are some useful interactive methods that can be used in different stages of the process?
•    How to best communicate the vision as to foster ownership and commitment?
•    What additional literature sources and examples can aid future vision development process?

There will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the webinar.
