We live in a period of rapid change. Planners, policy makers and other community members need practical guidance for understanding, evaluating, and responding to emerging issues. This presentation explores how to do this. It examines the impacts of current demographic and economic trends, such as aging population and rural poverty, on future travel demands and housing preferences; emerging community goals such as affordability, public safety and health, and local economic development; and the implications of new technologies such as ride-hailing and autonomous vehicles. It discusses how to apply comprehensive analysis to these changes, and how to develop responses that maximize benefits and minimize problems.

This event is made possible through a partnership with the OSU Office of Outreach and Engagement, the OSU Center for Human Ethics and Values, the OSU Corporate Engagement Office, the OSU Office of Energy and Environment, and the OSU Sustainable and Resilient Economy Initiative.
