What might our cities and counties look like in 2036? The Alliance for Innovation Board of Directors set out on a journey to discover the “Next Big Things” facing local governments. We challenged ourselves to look beyond the horizon and imagine what our cities and counties might look like one generation from now. In September the Alliance will launch “Next Big Things” but on August 26th you have an opportunity to have a peek inside the material and hear from the author herself, Rebecca Ryan, Founder of NEXT Generation Consulting. 

Rebecca will share with you an overview of Four Forces and 44 Trends that should be on your radar. And provide you with an overview of the tools and resources available through the Next Big Things. You will leave the webinar with action steps you can take to be future ready!
