How might the region's employment trends change by 2050? Explore an interactive graphic that forecasts regional employment by category in 2050, then take a survey about this month's featured Alternative Future, Transformed Economy. And take the time to weigh in on this Alternative Future via web survey, kiosks, or by attending a workshop.
The Chicago Tribune previewed our next forum, "The Future of Economic Opportunity," while reporting on a timely new study of automation's long-term effects on regional jobs. Also see CMAP's guest post on the Metropolitan Planning Council blog about the forum, which will be held on Wednesday, July 19, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., at the Homewood-Flossmoor Auditorium (2010 N. Chestnut Rd., Homewood).
Finally, August 30 will mark a return to the City Club of Chicago by CMAP executive director Joe Szabo. His talk will be the first look at what we've heard from the public during our five-month Alternative Futures engagement and preview recommendations of the ON TO 2050 plan.
