Abstract

In this editorial we explore how the concept of the city region has evolved and what questions this raises for the role of urban futures, including visioning and foresight. The editorial and special issue highlight the importance of foresight techniques in city-region visioning, how power relations are shaped and transformed by these processes, and how important it is to link city-regional foresight with transitions theory and urban innovation, alongside the climate change and sustainability agendas. This paper also addresses the application of city-region visioning in the Global North/Global South, and what this means for future research.
