What will our world be like in 2050?
Drivers of Change is a research-based publication developed by Arup to help its business and clients identify and explore leading factors which will affect our world in the future.
The publication is a planning tool that helps the user to ask the right questions in order to plan effectively for the future. It investigates themes including: energy, waste, climate change, water, demographics, urbanisation and poverty.
Each card depicts a single driver. A factoid and rhetorical question are on one face, backed up by a more detailed exploration of the issue on the reverse.
The set was devised by Arup’s Foresight, Incubation and Innovation team, headed by Chris Luebkeman. The group explores emerging trends and how they impact upon Arup and its clients.
Drivers of Change serves not only as a vibrant, visual record of research, but also as a tool for developing business strategy, brainstorming and education.
