Society disrupted, now what?

October 29, 2020

RESEARCH REPORT

In brief


Five emerging lifestyles

The state of health

Influences where we travel. Travelers will need to accept new social norms and health measures in exchange for renewed freedom of movement. This heightened focus on individual and collective wellbeing will accelerate investments in health services and making digital health more cybersecure.

Environmental concerns

Drive new modes of transport. How we move will hinge on cleaner, more sustainable vehicles. Demand will accelerate for micro-vehicles, e.g. rentable e-bikes, seen as cheaper and time-saving alternatives to other modes of personal transport.

Affordable tech

Increases economic self-sufficiency and enables micro-entrepreneurs to create more income streams, as more young people develop relevant ICT skills.

Smarter habitats

Inspire more connected living. Tech-enabled neighborhoods with hyper-connected 5G networks, IoT and renewable energy infrastructures will offer more vibrant, versatile and sustainable spaces – especially in high-density urban areas.

Responsible denizens

Care about how their spending habits impact communities. A drive for transparency over food and other products is shifting demand to local suppliers.
