It’s good to be back!

Two modest questions kick off Season 2: What will metro Atlanta look like in 2050? And what do we do now, to make it the place we want? Internationally-renowned futurist Glen Hiemstra fills us in on the large-scale trends he says will shape the region between now and 2050, and a couple of folks who do it for a living talk about how to plan for a future you can’t know completely. Also…cute kids! The prognostications of children from the late-‘90s for the distant year of…2020.
