Summary Megatrends 2014

This study is a first introduction to megatrends and their impacts on the environment in Flanders, today and in the future. Because of the high degree of complexity and uncertainty, the impact of megatrends on our society in general and on the environment in particular cannot be determined unambiguously. What is clear, however, is that the six identified megatrends inevitably impact the environment. They do so through four societal systems: spatial planning, energy, mobility, and production and consumption. The megatrends have a considerable impact on their organisation, hence the need to make those systems more sustainable, more resilient and more futureproof. Policy can play an important role in this process.
