Brussels: 2052 - A Global Forecast for the Next Forty Years
March 20th: Jorgen Randers presented the Report to the Club of Rome.
The co-author of the original "Limits to Growth" tries to answer the question what our world will look like in forty years time. The forecast 2052 dares to give highly educated guesses, combining data, modelling and hard science with an understanding of human nature and its systems and intuitions. Its findings are sufficiently unsettling and startling to start the debate about the need for fundamental change.
