SEVEN REVOLUTIONS IS WHAT WE CALL THE LARGEST DRIVERS OF CHANGE IN THE WORLD OVER THE COMING DECADES.
During a recent trip to Washington, D.C. I had the opportunity to see a presentation by John Schaus from the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) otherwise known as a Think Tank (Collective group of the best minds in the world).
In an hour-long presentation given by John Schaus, a team of educators explore where these drivers currently stand, and engage the audience on how decisions today can change the course of the seven revolutions. Seven Revolutions is a framework for considering the future—and how you and your organization can be successful in it. This information is important to those like myself preparing the students of today for the jobs of tomorrow.
Have you considered how a global population of 9 billion people by the middle of the century will impact your life? What are the challenges for the availability of food, water, and energy resources? How will society balance the benefits of technological innovation and advanced communication with the threat of cyber security? How will global economic integration and governance affect trade, markets, and commerce overall?
To answer questions like these, the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) embarked on an initiative in 1992 to address and analyze the key policy challenges that policymakers, business figures, and other leaders will face out to the year 2035 & beyond. It is an effort to promote strategic thinking about the long-term trends that too few take the time to consider. Though our research is constantly evolving, we created this guide as a snapshot for what we call the Seven Revolutions.
The key points of this research have been captured in an exciting, fast-paced, multimedia presentation that has been given around the world—from governments to private corporations to academia to nongovernmental organizations. Seven Revolutions is constantly updated to reflect the latest data analysis and available technologies. It is an effective tool for pushing audiences to think outside of their areas of expertise and beyond their familiar planning parameters.
In exploring the world of 2035, the seven areas of change we have identified are:
