Scenario building techniques are often used to examine different futures where there is considerable uncertainty or where the business-as-usual is no longer appropriate. Traditionally, explorative and normative views are taken about desirable futures, and the method then investigates different policy packages that can be used to reach those futures and the alternative pathways that can be followed. Where most difficulties have arisen in the past has been in bridging the conceptual elegance of the approach with the practicalities of implementation. The use of co-creation spaces can bridge this ‘implementation gap’ through a participatory approach in which different stakeholders take an active role in building scenarios, in identifying policy measures and packages, and in evaluating different pathways. This seminar brings together the different strands of this co-creation scenario-building methodologies, discussing the following issues: (i) the selection of participants; (ii) the combination of participatory techniques; (iii) the development of learning processes; (iv) the need for and role of mediators; (v) the diversity of transport futures and integration of policy pathways; (vi) the timeline and future horizons; (vii) the acceptability of different pathways; and (viii) the legal and institutional constraints to effective implementation.
