Join us on 27 June to discover how technologies and scientific breakthroughs might disrupt human motivations and needs.

Event agenda coming soon!

How might technology and scientific breakthroughs re-shape human needs?

We live in an era dominated by knowledge and rapid technology change. We live in a hyperconnected world where we increasingly demand more customised products, better living environments, cleaner air, more nutritious food, better health or sleep quality. The rapid urbanisation, increased competition, new lifestyles or climate change are some of the drivers that underpin the acceleration of those demands.

Now, imagine a day without any of these. A day without data, without smartphones, Whatsapp or LinkedIn. How would you live, work and communicate? Imagine what you can do now that you couldn’t do 20 years ago. What has technology enabled? And how have our needs changed during this time?

Now imagine what our needs might be in the next 20 years.
