About Us

Government in 2071 is an initiative launched by the World Government Summit with the vision of preparing governments for the future. With the year 2071 being the target period for the findings, megatrends were captured, both societal and technological, which have the potential to alter the way citizens live, how societies will operate and be governed.

These findings were compiled to form a guidebook intended to direct governments on how to prepare for the future. Today this initiative has impacted more than just governments, altering how private sector entities are strategizing for the future, and startup innovators are shifting direction to better accommodate such expected megatrends.
