As we move towards the launch of the new future agenda website, we are sharing some of the 1000 word summaries of all of the key cross topic / regional insights to have come out of last year’s 120 workshops. Several people have been asking for previews of what is coming so several have been published via LInkedIn. Here are the first few:
Africa Growth – a perspective on Africa and how it may be seen as more and more significant over the next decade or so.
Still being Stupid – why we individually and collectively continue to make decisions that may make sense in the short-term – but do not lead to better longer-term consequences
Food Waste – looks at food waste and some of the opportunities we have to make far better use of the food we have available – without needing to use more land and fresh water.
Built-in Flexibility – exploring issues around upgrading and repurposing systems to make them more open
Speed to Scale – looks at the increasingly acceleration of some companies to significant scale and questions whether the physical size of these organisations has been decoupled from their reach and value.
The website will launch with 60 of these insight summaries plus access to the 800 or so individual insights from all of the workshops which can currently be seen on flickr.
