One of the many activities from this Foresight Project is “The Newcastle City Futures 2065 Report” developed by Prof M. Tewdwr-Jones and Prof. J Goddard and Dr. Paul Cowie from Newcastle University. This recently published  report explores the future of cities over the next 50 years by looking in detail at the prospects for Newcastle as a test bed for this new methodology.  And Northumbria University’s VRV Studio is given approval to decipher these different scenarios, from the report, into visualisations. These visualisations will support knowledge exchange and public engagement activities for the Newcastle Futures Project and will establish a methodology for these types of visualisations.  You can watch the final visualisation below.
