Urgency for Action

Following the assessment of Preferred Future, think-tank participants were asked about their perception of urgency for action.

QUESTION: How quickly do you think stakeholders need to adopt and pursue strategies to achieve the preferred vision?

SCALE: 1 = Not urgent right now; 10 = Critically urgent right now

Key things to note:

  • Almost all people rated the sense of urgency as 7 or above on the scale.

  • This reflects an elevated sense of urgency, and an opportunity to ‘seize the moment’
