The first step in creating future scenarios was to conduct background research in order to identify key stakeholders who should be involved in the process and to then identify the limitations, constraints, and boundaries to the study. Stakeholders included municipal officials and planners, residents from all neighbourhoods and townships of Grahamstown. The study does indeed explore a wide range of possibilities for the various aspects of Grahamstown. However it was established that the idealistic scenario showed various trends of sustainability that were not present in the status quo scenario and in many ways contradictory to the unsustainable dark days scenario. The fundamental drivers that affect the changes across scenarios were identified as; social attitudes, political will and education levels.
