Shift happens

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a day developing scenarios with other budding futurists at a FAN (Future Analysts Network) club strategic futures coaching event run by the Government’s Foresight programme. To get us all in a future-focused and creative frame of mind, they showed us this great slide show 'Shift Happens' which contains lots of suprising demographic, economic and technological facts and stats about the present and future. I thought I’d share it with you all as I think it’s a really good tool for organisations to use when they’re doing their strategic planning, developing scenarios or generally doing any futures work. I think it can be a good prompt to get people thinking outside of their comfort zone, which is so important when trying to think about what the future might hold.
