Technological acceleration, growth and ageing of the world population, climate change, scarcity of resources, and shifting geopolitical balances are among the main forces shaping the watershed moment that the world is currently undergoing.
A scenario that has been further complicated by the recent spread of the Coronavirus epidemic (Covid-19) in many parts of the world.
The main trends lead to the need to:
- redefine and reinvent the role of companies
- rethink urbanisation
- define a new world of work
- manage a new relationship with consumers
- promote “adaptive” governance
The new scenarios make it necessary to define new business models, promote different forms of inter-sector collaboration, and develop increasingly innovative financial instruments.
