Everybody has a plan — until they don’t. Approaching the dawn of a new decade, global sentiment in the 2020s was brimming with optimism. We would embrace the future of work, transform digitally, learn to live and breathe agility, and defeat climate change at scale.
The pandemic forced us to adapt markedly in the short term. Its long-term effects will be even more profound. Much of the transformation happening now has been long overdue. We’re approaching a global turning point. This is our opportunity to finally realise pivotal changes we always knew mattered.
It’s time we reach beyond the obvious. The new normal presents a valuable opportunity to question deeper and more pervasively the way things are. Big changes can become catalysts for a better world. What might that world be like?
This is the story of how the 2020s will change modern humanity forever. Let’s rewrite our future together.
‘I believe in a world in which we all trust each other. When we trust ourselves and others, we transform. Trust empowers us to become the best version of ourselves and humanity. It’s our shared foundation for greatness.’
