From the Back Cover

Navigating the future can be tricky........

The scale of change happening around us can be bewildering, and scary. This book offers clarity, and hope. There is every chance that the world in 2050 will be richer, healthier, more connected, more sustainable, more innovative, better educated, and with less inequality between rich and poor and between men and women.

Enormous challenges lie ahead, from managing climate change to feeding 9 billion people by 2050 and coping with a multitude of new security threats. In its 20 chapters that look at everything from health to wealth and religion to outer space, Megachange confronts these issues in its exploration of the fundamental trends that are shaping the world.

Brimming with (often counter-intuitive) ideas and facts, Megachange provides fascinating insights into what the coming decades will bring.
