Visioning, or formulating a shared description of a desired future state, has the potential to build a shared sense of direction. It can also create targets and benchmarks and galvanise commitment to strategies and plans. A vision is a concise description of a desired medium- to long term future state. This chapter describes why and how visions are developed. Examples are provided from SWITCH where city
visions were developed by the learning alliances and linked to broader visions for city development. [authors abstract]
