Discussion

The richness of scenarios available and the wealth of information they contain provide an invaluable opportunity for communication and cooperation. Novel forms of communication open up new channels for comprehensive communication of complex content. To further involve stakeholders directly via co-production of scenarios is a powerful means, as it integrates their perspectives on what is important or uncertain.

Format: The session will be a hybrid with a first part consisting of two invited talks plus several talks selected from submitted abstracts on the state-of-the art of scenario communication and co-production, followed by a hands-on workshop to showcase visualization techniques. Those submitting abstracts can also propose to participate in the demonstration of visualization techniques, although that is not required.
