Salford's Future Search Conference, 21/22/23 July 2008

Salford's Future Search conference

Partners IN Salford held a Future Search conference in July called Seizing Salford's Moment: Connecting People with Opportunities.

Mediacity and other developments will bring massive opportunities and new prosperity to the city. We need to make the most of these chances, and ensure that everyone in the city feels that they benefit and their lives improve. The conference, which will be attended by 64 delegates, all chosen for their experience and knowledge, will get us thinking about the answers together.

It took place over three days:

Monday 21 July: 4pm - 9pm

Tuesday 22 July:8.30am - 6pm

Wednesday 23 July:9am - 3pm

What is Future Search?

Future Search is the name of a particular way of running a conference. It was devised by Sandra Janoff and Marvin Weisbord and has been used successfully all over the world. Sandra will be in Salford to help us.

The aim of Future Search is to bring together people from all walks of life to find ways of solving a difficult problem. Nothing like this has ever been done in the city.

An important part of Future Search is that it happens over three days. Participants benefit from having time away from the conference to go home, let everything sink in and refresh themselves for the next session.

Why Future Search?

We have chosen to use Future Search because by using this method we will be able to hear what a wide variety of people think and feel. By the end of the Future Search, we will have agreed a plan for how to connect people with opportunities.... no mean feat after three days!
