MIND THE FUTURE - COMPENDIUM OF CONTEMPORARY TRENDS
The compendium “Mind the Future” brings together the most important developments in business, demography, society, technology, politics and ecology in a card index system. In each area, ten important contemporary trends are identified and their possible future development analysed. The 60 trends are – wherever possible – supported with scientific fact and illustrated with visuals by Cologne artist Manu Burghardt. Mind the Future is an "open book" and reflects the fact that we can essentially only formulate hypotheses about the future and need to revise our assumptions as time goes by. The compendium is aimed at readers who are interested in today's key developments and their possible future impact. It voices opinions from both established and different thinkers and offers not only decision-making support, but also inspiration.
