    For groups that are interested in submitting scenarios, I'd be happy to hold a meetup to explain the process and give some guidance on how to develop scenarios. Scenario planning is a tool used by many companies, governments, and non-profits to better understand the challenges and opportunities that may emerge in the future.

      I wrote two scenarios and posted them in the common "More" tab under files.
