The megatrends are:

 

“More from Less” – the decline in resource availability while demand is increasing;

“Going going gone” which addresses the risk of biodiversity loss due to human activity;

“The silk highway” meaning the world’s economic centre is shifting to Asia;

“Forever young” where the ageing population is both an asset and a challenge;

“Virtually here”; the impact of increased digital connectivity; and

“Great expectations”, reflecting the human desire for more intense personal experiences.
