The Alpha Catalyst Consulting team was recently involved in the discussion on the Future of Cities, led by Future Agenda, the largest open foresight initiative. Future Agenda is focused on key issues facing society over the next decade and has generated insights from over 120 workshops, held in 45 locations around the world. The focus on cities emerged from a realisation that cities around the world are currently growing at a massive scale, and are home to 50% of the world’s population. Cities generate 80% of the global GDP but also consume 75% of the world’s natural resources.
