Future Trends: Our world and us
How our environment and our societies will change
We won’t tackle the world’s challenges if we feel resigned, frightened or powerless. To broaden and enliven the debates on climate change and demographics, we’ve asked a number of leading scientists and researchers as well as some of Allianz’s own experts to approach these issues from various angles. Their analyses are clear, often sobering, and sometimes surprising. More importantly, they all come armed with ideas and solutions for anticipating, managing – even finding opportunities in – the changes that lie ahead.
In this book, we find suggestions for how to forge a global climate deal, make business greener, remove carbon from the atmosphere and completely overhaul the way we travel, live in cities and generate electricity. We also learn how people can stay sharp and healthy in their 90s, how societies can achieve fairness for the old and young, how migration can benefit all and what companies must do to stay profitable in the face of demographic change.
