COVID-19, #Metoo, Black Lives Matter (BLM), Circular Economy (Circularity), virtual interactions and Work From Home (WFH), the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI), the rise of China (Chinafication), Deep Fake and much more.
The last year has brought us huge changes with consequences in terms of behavior, politics, consumerism, communication – and the stories we need to tell.
Whereas micro trends are constantly in the making, adding up to become megatrends like developments in AI, the last year has also brought us “wild cards” or “black swans” that were hard to anticipate. Even people’s dreams are radically changing!
In this talk, Brian Due and Timme B. Munk will present what they consider to be the key trends storytellers should listen to right now.
