Three Main Concepts of Urbanization will evolve in the future:Megacities – with a minimum population of 5 Million (Eg. Greater London). Characteristics are: GDP of more than 100 billion US dollars, 5 million Mega Regions: Over a period of time, two or more mega cities merge to form one big region (eg. Johannesburg and Pretoria – will form a region – Jo Toria ) Mega Corridors: Transportation Corridors interconnect two or more mega cities or regions – to form mega corridors. Eg, Hong Kong-Shenzhen-Guangzhou in China with Population 120 Million

A virtual world is a genre of online community that often takes the form of a computer-based simulated environment, through which users can interact with one another and use and create objects. Virtual worlds are intended for its users to inhabit and interact, and the term today has become largely synonymous with interactive 3D virtual environments, where the users take the form of avatars visible to others graphically. These avatars are usually depicted as textual, two-dimensional, or three-dimensional graphical representations, although other forms are possible (auditory and touch sensations for example). Some, but not all, virtual worlds allow for multiple users.According to K Zero, a virtual world consultancy service, there are nearly 580 million people worldwide registered in virtual worlds today. And they expect the 600 million barrier to be broken before 2009 is over.Rita J. King, CEO of Dancing Ink Productions, a strategic creative content development and research company, believes virtual worlds will augment what she calls "the Digital Culture.""I envision virtual worlds evolving for business and cultural development as the medium becomes more ubiquitous.""Chatting in a two-dimensional platform can be fun, informative and valuable," argued King. "But co-creating and inhabiting a three-dimensional space that can then be collaborated upon cannot be matched. This allows people to 'be together' despite geographical location, age, gender, ethnic or sociopolitical affiliation.""But interactions will only be as developed as the imaginations and motivations of the people involved."Ideally, King believes we will move to a position where people can augment their physical lives with virtual realities. This may ultimately affect our perceptions of physical 'wants'."Things change and develop so fast," Nergiz Kern, an English language educator inside Second Life, told IOL . "But I think virtual worlds will become as normal as the internet is now. Most people who are online will have an avatar and use VW [virtual worlds] for all kinds of activities from meeting and chatting with friends to learning and doing business."
A Zero Concept World - Zero Concept” World with zero emissions, zero accidents, zero fatalities, zero defects, zero breaches of security can now be a reality in the future. Companies will shift focus and develop products and technologies that “Innovate to Zero” such as zero emission technologies (such as wind power, Travelling Wave Reactor (TWR), Solar PV, Third Generation Bio Fuels) .

Key Strategic Conclusions<br />Mega Trends are connected and inter-wined which suggests “synergetic” opportunities between them<br />It is important to understand the eco-system of the Mega Trend and the elements of the value chain which have most profitability<br />All these trends are global and have global ramifications thereby offering scalable opportunities<br />These forces are changing rapidly and bringing new competencies into play at half the life-cycle speed of the past decade<br />Organisations’ need “Mega Trend” champions and teams within their organisation structure to best exploit the opportunities<br />It is important to build a healthy eco-system around your opportunity related to a mega trend as it can be a source of competitive advantage and raise barriers to entry (e.g. App store advantage vs Google)<br />

Smart Cities. Civilian satellites means high speed broadband, wireless and 4G and free wi-fi in public places/cities<br />Example: People in future will need “personal mobility” not necessarily cars to commute to work. This will lead to need for integrated mobility combining all forms of transport including cars<br />
