Visioning OSUE 2035

Building from the research based information gained from forecasting Ohio in 2035, we asked the questions related to how Extension might best meet the challenges in the years ahead. Visioning brings our focus back to the present by asking “SO WHAT? Now that we have glimpsed into the potential alternative futures, what could or should OSU Extension do?”
