The process of creating the scenarios for Latin America began in 2014 with the identification of a team of 37 influential leaders from the region. These representatives from different social spheres, including politics, academia, private sector, and civil society, made up the Scenario Team (ST).
A round of 65 interviews with well-known people and key actors in the region, including all of the members of the ST, followed. These interviews served as an initial guide to establish the fundamental thematic variables of the process.
The ST met in December 2014 and January and April 2015 in three 3-day workshops to construct the scenarios. Each workshop included a wide range of profiles and perspectives (sectors, ideologies, professions, disciplines, etc.), developing a holistic approach to the different opportunities and challenges to the democratic system in the region in the short, medium, and long terms.
Based on the proposed scenarios, the team designed a communication strategy to spread key messages about the challenges to democracy in the region and forge commitments in accordance with the formulated narratives. In this way, the process led by the ST members seeks to promote strategies to impact public opinion, academic debate, and political action, and to be a vital support and basis for dialogue and action in Latin America.
