Calling all thinkers, futurists, prognosticators, crystal-ballers, experts, entrepreneurs, and Chamber members and partners!
At our Future Focus, we will ask everyone to look ‘upstream’, challenge the linear assumptions and think about the possibilities and probabilities that may be in our future – everything from education to infrastructure, innovation ecosystem to emerging industries, talent attraction and retention to sustainability, disruption to globalization, AI and robotics to next generation jobs.
Imagine! Everything is on the table as we look at ourselves and our city with fresh perspective.
To get you thinking and prepared here are a few questions to start us off:
Of those challenges we are dealing with now, which ones will be addressed, managed or mitigated and which ones will we be dealing with into the future and why?
What’s inevitable and what’s not?
What industries will still be thriving, what industries will be struggling or dying?
How will our industries/sectors be disrupted and what are the implications for our economy and workforce?
Where are the opportunities for Irvine and how do we optimize them?
How do we navigate an economy that doesn’t exist yet?
So do your homework. Bring your most thoughtful opinions. Help us take a look into the future that we shape for Irvine!
At last month's EVC meeting we imagined what Irvine will be in the future. This month, we'll tackle the notes, questions and comments that we gathered. We'll identify the issues we want to address, formulate Task Forces to address them
