a forum for our future
Enormous challenges lie ahead…

From managing climate change to feeding over 9 billion people by the year 2050, and coping with new security threats, navigating the future is tricky. How will major global forces such as demographic changes, resource stress, technology, and economic power shifts change our future? The World in 2050 is a virtual think tank and do tank, which convenes multi-stakeholders in the private and public sectors through a series of global summits and forums, research papers and reports, and digital and print media.

The World in 2050 focuses on seven key megatrends: the future of society, humanity, energy, health, travel, the future of off world civilizations, and artistic visions of the future. Each of these seven megatrends represent fields of worldwide pivot points for megachange.

How can your contribution direct us toward a better world in 2050? Join our alliance of over 100 thought partners from 20+ industries, representing global publics in over 180 countries.

JOIN GLOBAL PUBLICS & THOUGHT LEADERS FROM 180 COUNTRIES ON A JOURNEY OF STRATEGIC FORECASTING FOR A BETTER FUTURE.
