Response to Costanza 2000. "Visions of alternative (unpredictable) futures and their use in policy analysis"

Beyond Academia

Published: February 14, 2002


In my work in urban restoration ecology, I have seen the damaging effects of largely intragroup discussions on topics with broad societal implications. Although Constanza (2000) roves well beyond the bounds of academic science in content and methodology, so far the responses to his article (and, indeed, the sample groups he selected) come from within the confines of academia. I suggest that soliciting responses from other segments of society, the technology industry, for example, would both enliven the discussion and more quickly initiate the broad visioning process Constanza advocates.
