Europe, its youth democracy, a decision-making artificial intelligence, is highly prosperous, despite its relatively small territory and population.
Memories of 2021. The energy sector was responsible for around three quarters of all greenhouse gas emissions. 2045: How we achieved a net zero world.
Outright wars between states remain extremely rare, but new technologies and strategies are enabling countries and groups to wage conflict by hybrid means.
The tastes and habits of Generation Alpha. Kids born from 2010 through 2024. They’re weaned on TikTok, Amazon and in-app purchases.
Whether it’s reviving old trends or starting new ones, TikTok is where Gen Z sets the tone for what’s cool.
The climate and the biodiversity summit, which equal climate change as an existential crisis.
Amazon’s strategy depends on convincing consumers to choose online services over physical locations they already use and trust. That’s a bigger leap than convincing people to try a new bookstore.
On-demand delivery is growing alongside an explosion in e-commerce, fueled by changes in consumer behavior during the pandemic.
We’re much better at explaining the past than predicting the future. Some dangerous variants may only be possible if the virus hits on a very rare, winning combination of mutations.
How weird is the future going to be? Just a little bit, or plain flat-out radically unthinkably weird? And is this future 1,000 years from now, or 100?
Purpose officers hold their companies accountable to their mission and the people who work for them.
Even for vaccinated people, the chances of getting Covid-19 will not be zero anytime soon. So, for all of us to comfortably return to in-person work, send our kids to school and abandon our masks, we will have to rely on multiple lines of trust.
Generation Z has been hit disproportionately by the biggest educational disruption in modern history, a surge in unemployment and the psychological effects of lockdown isolation.
Understanding the long-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and to begin to explore the lessons that can be learned from the mistakes made in handling the current health crisis. In order to prepare for future opportunities.
The pandemic has been a seismic event for young people, with some facing a heavy toll of disruption, isolation and anxiety. How will ‘Generation Covid-19‘ catch up?
The immediate human and economic costs of Covid-19 are severe. They threaten to scale back years of progress on reducing global poverty and inequality and further damage social cohesion and global cooperation.
Momenteel zijn alle inspanningen gericht op de bestrijding van de Covid-19 pandemie. De blik op de toekomst lijkt te ontbreken.
The People’s Charter for Health will use the strategic plan (2020 – 2025) to unite activists across the movement, from country circles, regions, networks and global programmes.
Protecting the safety and integrity of elections, finding the right place for expertise, coping with resurgent populism and nationalism, countering homegrown and foreign disinformation, and defending the democratic model.
Strategic foresight can be a powerful tool to help you understand and evaluate your options even when the future seems very unclear
Riemen vast, de sociale crisis gaat nog komen! Zonder plan gaat de leefsituatie van vele Nederlanders verslechteren.
Our desire to put the pandemic behind us makes sense, but the virus and its unsettling associates – masks, social distancing rules, hand-sanitiser dispensers, quarantines, lockdowns – aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Our future plans must begin from this fact.
Mensen richten zich minder op het heden en denken in plaats daarvan na over de toekomst, of dat nu hoopvolle of angstige gedachten zijn. Er was een virus voor nodig om de wereld op zijn kop te zetten. Waar de Covid-19 crisis de politieke verbeelding van het publiek de vrije loop heeft gelaten, heeft ze op paradoxale wijze die van de elite verlamd. Morgen komt geen dag te laat.
Long before COVID-19 hit us, an overwhelming majority of the human population was already living two parallel lives: one face-to-face and the other on our virtual profiles (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Twitter, to name a few).
None of the EU, America and Britain will be measured by their stumbles in reacting to the virus. They will be measured by how fast their economies and cultures recover from their various lockdowns. It is a valid test of the overall quality of their governance, as well as of their societal flexibility, which varies greatly. It was the same after the financial crisis.
