Four scenarios were developed for the future of Thessaloniki towards 2030.
This study is building upon “The Future of Cities” report of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), which highlights drivers shaping the urban future. Moving forward the team has performed extensive desktop research work, as well as consultation with the project partners to collect city-specific information, as well as information on the specific air quality challenges. Following the extensive desk research, the research team has designed an overall scenario template (Cities scenarios board), as presented in the next section, and composed 4 plausible scenarios. All scenarios present several, equally plausible, future images of the cities, while in all cases there are specific references on the environmental situation.
