Possible European Territorial Futures

Theme: Territorial foresight studies 

Scope

The main objective of this activity is on the one hand to contribute to understanding possible territorial consequences, opportunities and challenges, of three “what-if” questions and with that to support policy development and agenda setting at relevant scales (European, national,regional and local). On the other hand the aim is to develop more general guidelines for territorial foresight studies within ESPON. Further reading please see below.

Policy questions

A. What could be the territorial consequences if a new place-based economic organisation were implemented as part of a circular economy?

B. What could be the territorial consequences if Europe’s energy production and consumption were 100% renewable?

C. What could be the territorial consequences if European property markets collapsed?
