Megatrends 2016

Published annually, Sitra’s megatrend listing casts light on the phenomena that we already see as affecting our society and especially our future. The three major drivers of change listed in the 2016 megatrend list are: quickly accelerating technological advancement, an interdependent and tension-driven world, and a global sustainability crisis related to natural resources and climate change. Each phenomenon is approached through challenges, but also through solutions and opportunities.
