Trends are patterns of change.

 

What are foresight trends?

“...the future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.” William Gibson

Trends are collections of small changes that we call “signals”. These signals are small changes happening in the environment around us.

These small changes, when collected, show movement toward change that will affect the way that we live in the future.

Signals can be found in unlikely places. In fact, the more radical something seems, the more likely it is to be a very early signal of change for the future. The more we are aware of change that seems radical, strange or new, the more likely it is to be shaping behaviour and ideas in your environment. We identify how far along a trend is on an “adoption curve” which helps us to see how embedded these changes are in the environment. Where a trend falls on the adoption curve makes some trends seem strange to some people while some trends seem quite obvious.

These are the trends that we identified that are likely to shape the experience of being a child in 2030.
