The Syncon Workshop "process was originally developed by the Committee for the Future under the direction of Barbara Marx Hubbard, a social architect and futurist, and Air Force Lt.Col. John J. Whiteside in Washington D.C. in the 1970s. Syncon Workshops (then just called Syncons, which stands for Synergistic Convergence) were held in 25 widely differing venues from university campuses to hotels, from Washington, D.C. to the rural areas of Jamaica and with gang leaders and civic officials in Los Angeles. Versions of this unique community planning process have been used successfully ever since."
