Here are some more Facilitation Examples. By Facilitation I am meaning general activities by planners, and others that cause or guide development, to influence the development of the built environment toward structural adaptivity as we progress into an ever more uncertain and unpredictable future. Some might call them implementation strategies or “calls to action.”
These examples have not been identified or studied by teams of experts; they are only my personal ideas intended to illustrate possibilities. Hopefully, however, they will convey a sense of the real prospects for structural adaptivity to be achieved. I believe that structural adaptivity is critical to resilience over the long term.
Promote the Futurist Perspective. With more attention in our society to the “futurist perspective,” sooner rather than later, such attention will also come to focus on the need for all forms of adaptivity, including structural adaptivity in our urban areas and regions. Structural adaptivity is the most, if not only, logical approach to facing a future that now is uncertain, unpredictable and rapidly changing.
