THE WORLD IN 2050

A Forum About Our Future

Enormous challenges lie ahead…

From managing climate change, feeding almost 10 billion people by 2050, and coping with new security threats, navigating the future is tricky. At Diplomatic Courier we have examined the indicators and the trends for a decade. The World in 2050 is a series of Global Summits hosted by Diplomatic Courier, in collaboration with private and public sector partners. The series was conceived in 2012 when the world reached 7 billion people, with the purpose of convening multi-stakeholders and to stimulate discussion and solutions about the future. How will these megatrends, i.e. major global forces such as demographic changes, resource stress, technology, and economic power shifts change the world in 2050 when the global population reaches more than 9 billion people? Join global publics and thought leaders from 180 countries on a journey of strategic forecasting for a better future.
