Emerging Trends and Signals: APA's 2022 Trend Report

Listen as the speakers highlight trends and external drivers of change connecting these directly to planning (e.g., increases in natural disasters, evolving community funding programs, or autonomous transportation).  This course will share other potentially unrelated distractors and trends with a lens to prepare planners with risk extreme disruption if they don’t address these issues (e.g., pandemic cave syndrome, 3D printing, metaverse). This course will spotlight the top trends and signals planners should prioritize on their watchlists.
