The Survey on the Global Agenda asked respondents to think about the emerging issues that haven’t yet reached their full potential, but which will have an important impact on our lives in the future.
As part of the Survey on the Global Agenda we asked the experts to identify “emerging issues” – those developments that are seen as important, but which have yet to reach their full potential or impact. The data pinpointed six issues as worthy of explanation, so in Big questions, our Global Agenda Council Members explore biotechnology, shale gas, the future of democracy, digital surveillance and emerging multinationals.
Outliers in the data also led us to extend our horizons, so The new space race examines how the great beyond is bringing new opportunities to mankind. And in Mapping the future, we track how emerging technologies are changing the way we live our lives back here on Earth.
