How do we integrate lasting megatrends into our entrepreneurial and structural decisions for the future?
Megatrends show the central global lines of development. For more than 10 years, Dr Andrej Heinke has been researching the interaction of megatrends and the future potentials they hold. The Megatrend Reports, produced in cooperation with filmmaker Alexander Kluge and Strichpunkt, outline the major global lines of development: essays and interviews with technology and business experts, sociologists, political scientists, ethicists and risk researchers place the formative technological and social developments in a broad context and thus paint a vivid picture of the future.

The report is quickly out of stock every year; we bring the contents - with a special focus on a current topic - to the virtual stage! In spotlight:
Restart after Corona - "After" Corona and in the midst of climate change, our lives and consumer behaviour will change permanently. Which megatrends will determine the coming decade - and how?

Dr Andrej Heinke, Vice President for Corporate Foresight at Bosch, talks to Katharina Bergmann, Senior Concept Developer and Jochen Theurer, Creative Director at Strichpunkt in our 90-minute online session.

We will take an explorative journey into the world of tomorrow with valuable insights from the future research of the leading technology group in a keynote speech, in conversation and in exchange with you, the participants.
