2.1: Visioning and building consensus on key themes
The objective of this sub-phase is for the city and its inhabitants to develop a vision for the city. A vision is a dream or picture of what the city wants to look like in the future to achieve its potential.
2.2: Set strategic objectives and build consensus on strategic directions
The objective of this sub-phase is for the city and its inhabitants to set clear strategic objectives for the city. Strategic objectives accompany the vision, translating its content into clear statements about what a city wants to achieve (sector-specific targets, specific magnitudes, and timing). Objectives connect existing variables with expectations and resources, in different urban fields. Objectives coordinate issues identified in the city profile (problems and/or opportunities) with the programmes and projects to be formulated in the next steps.
