Megatrends - Five Global Shifts reshaping the world we live in


A decade ago, the PwC Network identified five Megatrends, which were characterised as profound trends, global in scope and long-term in effect, affecting everyone on the planet and shaping our world for many years to come. It is now clear that these Megatrends have transformed our world even faster than we predicted. This is largely due to the interaction between them, which has turbocharged the speed and pervasiveness of such change. As Megatrends have been unfolding, they have also evolved, and the way they are manifesting today has shifted compared to ten years ago. The purpose of this talk is to provide a brief introduction to these Megatrends, see how these have changed, what future they may create in 2030, and what questions this will present to humanity.
