The World in 2050

Global Megatrends 2050

Global Megatrends 2050 is an ongoing research project of the Megatrends Watch Institute (MWI) which aims to foresee what kind of world may emerge within the next coming decades. Our research work is driven by a rigorous analysis of the current megatrends and its potential impacts, as well as challenges, for today's world and the future.

The world is in a critical juncture, in which the old system of human development is collapsing and a new one is being born.

If we closely scrutinize the current global megatrends and its impacts, we will see a set of massive shifts shaping the world over the next 10 to 15 years. MWI identifies 10 megatrends that will significantly transform the global landscape over the next decade and beyond.
