Workshop - Part One

Packaging faces a difficult and uncertain future. A failure to respond to difficulties could lead to its decline and replacement. The workshop will employ a Futures and Foresight process to consider the possible state of the sector in 2029 and then use a process of 'reverse extrapolation' to generate actions for the present.
