Faith Popcorrn quote

Trends tend to creep up on us, not noticeable at first, and then one day we realise things have changed and the World is no longer as we thought it was. We often speak about four mega trends which affects our work. They are the demographic change (on average we are getting older), urbanisation, globalisation and climate change. Within and in parallel to the mega trends many other changes are going on, at an increasingly fast pace.

The Economist has brought a futurist, a demographer and a museum curator together to spot the currently recognizable trends that will affect the way people live and work.

The video is about ten minutes and will provoke some new thoughts.
