It is necessary then to understand how such global megatrends impact a country and its government policies.

Beyond the scenarios presented in the Guidebook, the digital tool Government in 2071: Policy Architect is being developed to allow decision makers to:

  • Map out dramatic shifts governments will face across their functions
  • Develop multiple scenarios by adjusting societal and technological megatrend relevance
  • Determine policy implementation recommendations to affect long-term positive change
  • Governments — individually and collectively — must address the developing powerful megatrends to successfully steer towards the betterment of humanity and the planet. We welcome you to join us as we embark on this journey.
