The World in 2030: Global Megatrends and How the US Must Respond to Them

4 September 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm

Chatham House, London


Mathew Burrows, Director, Strategic Foresight Initiative, Atlantic Council; Counsellor and Director of Analysis, National Intelligence Council, US (2007-13)



Expanding on the findings of his agenda-setting Global Trends 2030 report, Mathew Burrows will draw on cutting-edge data to map the tectonic shifts underway globally and examine their potential impact on America’s fortunes. From demographic change and revolutions in technology, to shifts in global economic power and an increase in violent conflict in the Middle East, he will explore a range of scenarios posed by these ‘megatrends’ and suggest what action must be taken by the US in order to anticipate and prepare for them. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
