Megatrends are transformative, global forces that shape the future world with their far reaching influence on business, societies, economies, cultures and personal lives. Megatrends impact all regions in the world and all actors and organisations on a large time scale.

We have selected 6 Megatrends:

  • Economic Globalisation
  • Resource Scarcity and Climate Change
  • Global Governance
  • Demographics and Social Evolution
  • Innovation and Technologies
  • New consumption patterns

The identification and understanding of Megatrends are essential for our company to get a clearer visibility of future business risks and opportunities and as a result to betteradapt the “human capital” of Airbus. As such, Airbus has already started to take into account Megatrends impacts in a high number of projects.

We encourage each reader to consider actively information captured in GWF. One simple way could be to formalise for you only or for sharing the actions you would engage to progress on the subject, by writing on a simple table “What I will do in the next 3 days?”, then in the next 3 weeks, in the next 3 months and perhaps in the next 3 years?
