Global Supertrends Conference 2022

Closing keynote: The opportunities and challenges ahead

In the closing keynote, world renowned economist and best-selling author Jeffrey Sachs shared with moderator Credit Suisse’s Lito Camacho his insights into the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, driven by the interplay of various Supertrends.

“We are in a period of massive change; geopolitical, ecological. We already have war, and increasingly climate shocks and environmental disasters. So those are the downsides,” he said.

“On the upside, the (scientific and technological) breakthroughs nowadays are unbelievable. We have so much technology, so much insight, so much capacity, if we play our part, if we work together to solve problems, the opportunities are astounding.”
