The World between Chaos and New Opportunities

Does a complex world in a state of upheaval threaten to slip into an inability to take action? Power shifts, refugee crisis, military threats, terror, corrupt political structures, religious confrontations, climate change and the distribution struggle have all become intertwined through globalisation. Even the credibility of media reports is being questioned. History is being written and in parts reads like an evolutionary step backwards. It has created opportunities for new multilateralism and the people are taking to the streets in protest. What will our world look like in the future? Renowned personalities offer their advice and predictions:
