This organization created four scenarios with four little explanatory videos that depict how Europeans could live in 2040. The four scenarios are:
Meet Adam – My life between realities
Meet Isabella – Less is more to me
Meet Milan – One for all, all for one
Meet Tereza – Our circular community
Where can I get some base trends?
If you don't want to go to far in the future, you can also use trends highlighted by researchers. The company FJORD publishes every year a set of trends that are not too far away from what we experience today but still can serve as an inspiration to come with new ideas.
On their website you can find for each trend a little description of the trend and even suggestion on how you can react to this trend.
If the trends or future scenarios I selected for you aren't useful for your challenge you can search for the keywords "trend reports" or "future scenarios" in google and add the name of your industry, for example: "Trends report NGO 2020". Happy searching.
