Global Launch of the Future Possibilities Report - Opportunities for UN75 and the Future We Want
20 Jul 2020 -  While the end of the crisis caused by the COVID19 pandemic is not yet in sight, there is growing focus on the ways and means to build back better, by resetting the way we produce, consume, socialize and interact. The inaugural “2020 Future Possibilities Report” provides some of the first guidelines and benchmarks on how governments can prepare for such rapid change and will contribute to the important debate around the shape and form of the future economy. The Report launch, organized by the United Arab Emirates and the “UN75: 2020 and Beyond initiative,” presents an analysis of six transformational trends – from connectivity to self-improvement spending to renewable energy – that governments and multilateral institutions must be prepared to react to and capitalize on as they progress toward the UN’s centennial in 2045.
The Report provides an analysis of the transformational trends that create opportunities and offers pragmatic solutions for governments (and other stakeholders) to leverage those trends The findings can help countries better deliver on the decade of action on the Sustainable Development Goals and achieve our common future, in the context of the 75th anniversary of the UN.
