Potential megashocks varied between the issues, but the most frequently mentioned were climate changerelated extreme events, political economy shocks (e.g. corruption, lobbying by powerful incumbent players, changing government and government policies), food and oil price shocks, novel technology shocks, geo-political security shocks (e.g. terrorism, cross-border disputes, refugees), nuclear energy disasters, and extended energy blackouts.Based on these shared issues and drivers, four overlapping megatrends were identified: ‘More affluent, more informed consumers’, ‘Green energy’s quiet take over’, ‘Increasing windows of opportunity’, and ‘Clashing interests and ideologies’. Using information and data suggested by Cluster researchers during the horizon scanning, combined with a literature review on the drivers and issues identified, narratives were collated for each megatrend. These are summarised below
