dc.descriptionThe report, ‘Global Megatrends and the Black Country’ is intended to support and inform on-going strategic conversations within and between institutions, communities and individuals, across the Black Country and beyond. This report provides a review of some of the latest data, trends and thinking on global megatrends.
dc.description.abstractThis report on megatrends highlights the global conditions, relations and practices that the Black Country will need to negotiate in the medium and long term. Every day individuals, groups, institutions and governments anticipate and act towards the future. The Dial 481 project aims to build on and extend such everyday sense making in order to inform and support future debates, policies and practices. Reporting on megatrends is not an exercise in predicting the future, but an attempt to consider the possible outcomes of current practices and to anticipate potential opportunities and challenges. The task is not to know the future, but to anticipate and act towards the futures of the Black Country.
