The global pandemic and ensuing social and economic disruptions have led to significant uncertainty about the future and the need for global actors to adapt. While we may not have a crystal ball to show us what is to come, this month’s guest on A Deeper Look podcast, Lars Gustavsson, may be the next best thing. Lars studies global issues and phenomena to predict megatrends and their accelerants, so that we can effectively plan for and respond to them.
Lars is Leading Partner for the Fourth Sector Futures Group, which focuses on the intersection of the public, private and civil society sectors. We discuss the trends he predicts will shape human behavior and public policy in the 2020s and what they mean for the field of human development. In a time of great uncertainty, Lars’s insights are incredibly provocative.
