This report presents a narrative of the future through six interlinked megatrends. A megatrend is a significant shift in environmental, economic and social conditions that will play-out over coming decades. They are: 1. More from less - Limited natural resources with rising demand. 2. Going, going, ... gone? - Pressure on biodiversity and ecological habitats. 3. The silk highway. The shifting world economy powered by developing Asia. 4. Forever young. The ageing population, retirement savings gap and healthcare expenditure. 5. Virtually here. The rise of online retail, tele-working and collaborative consumption. 6. Great expectations. New and rising consumer and societal demand for experiences over products.
