Encompass: Broadening the Scope of Planning
Encompass is about embracing unexpected connections and taking planning in new directions. At the 10th annual SCARP Symposium we gather inspiration from diverse sources, finding fresh ideas by looking within - and beyond - the traditional boundaries of planning. Come prepared to challenge assumptions, connect innovative ideas, and broaden your scope of planning.
