What Envision SC is All About
Envision South Carolina is a series of online and real world events to enable
South Carolinians to dream, connect, and learn together about making our state world class and globally connected.
Envision South Carolina is Bold
It's an experiment to use new technology and media to enable people to have their voices heard about the future of our state.
Envision South Carolina is Innovative
It uses new technology to connect everyone – individual citizens, students, media companies, businesses, colleges – to all share their individual visions so that we can then create a shared South Carolina vision of what our state's future can be.
Envision South Carolina is Unique
No state has ever used the new digital technology to try and do this before. This is just the beginning - and no one knows what will happen.
Envision South Carolina is Ambitious
The three goals of Envision South Carolina are:
- to gather ideas from interviews with SC's "best and brightest" about what we need to do to make SC "world class and globally connected" in the new, competitive world of the 21st century;
- to provide a way for everyone in the state to express their ideas, comment and offer their suggestions;
- to encourage students to "connect, learn and share" with other students worldwide.
Envision SC was developed in association with the Palmetto Project, an entrepreneurial, SC-based nonprofit that identifies innovative approaches to the social and economic challenges facing South Carolina, and puts them into action throughout the state.
