We live in a time of great abundance and unparalleled possibilities fueled by exponential growth from the impact of technology. Our job at sparks & honey is to understand the accelerators, balancers and patterns that are driving exponential cultural change in the near term and foreseeable future.  Our team of cultural strategists and curators works with leading brands and thought leaders to apply these trends and use them as a catalyst for disruptive innovation.

We eat culture for breakfast in order to understand the value of emerging fringe signals, cultural shifts and explosive doubling patterns. While monitoring thousands of inputs and mapping and scoring them, we have identified 8 rapidly accelerating trends that will shape institutions, governments, businesses and everyday consumers.

We have consolidated these trends into short vignettes in order to share a curated snapshot of what will either create great opportunities or unexpected challenges. We will cover these 8 trends over the next few months. This report covers The Century of the City State. We hope you engage us in the debate and exploration on how these exponential trends will shape your business and the World.

  • blegowo blegowo Well done! Waiting for your next future prediction on education. Nevertheless, we are all victim of hindsight bias. Our ability to explain the past does not constitute our ability to predict the future. Hence, we should be realistic-futurist or futuristic-realist :) 3 months ago

  • MarcHess1 Marc Hess In an age of WMD, catastrophic hacking of utilities and super-empowered terrorist groups, global city states are the most non-resilient systems imaginable. They will require a lot of NSA type surveillance and 'droning' of perceived bad-guys to enjoy even the illusion of safety.
