Global Megatrends tells a story about how the world will change over the next 20 years. ‘Megatrends’ are gradual yet powerful trajectories of change that have the potential to throw companies, individuals and societies into freefall. In Global Megatrends author Stefan Hajkowicz identifies seven patterns of global change: resource scarcity; the challenge to protect biodiversity and the global climate; the world’s ageing demographic; digital technology transformation; rapid economic growth and urbanisation in the developing world; societal and consumer expectation for experiential goods and services; and finally a world where human innovation makes (just about) anything possible.
