The publishing series Strategies for the City of the Future

These are the five volumes of publications accompanying Wrocław 2036/56 Social Foresight, which were published at the end of 2016. They contain texts by several dozen authors as well as interviews, analyses and reports.

In volume 0 (Wrocław. Reverse. Scenarios for the City of the Future, edited by Kamila Kamińska, Małgorzata Pięta-Kanurska and Aleksandra Snitsaruk) we write about what lies ahead within the next 20 and 40 years – and we propose our own scenarios, visions and stories.
