All of which will have an effect on the configuration, growth and sustainability of cities and megacities.

We must consider bias, privacy and security, and be more mindful in creating Metaverse, Web3, and Digital Engagement solutions where we empower the people that create the magic – the users and the platform designers – while considering a sustainable and responsible approach to the triple bottom line – people, planet, and profit.
Shift your mindset from what is to WHAT IF…
What if you create bolder visions of your future, strengthen strategic planning capabilities, anticipate unforeseen risks, and understand the value it provides to the market, your customers, and your shareholders? What if you create an anticipatory organizational capability? And, what if you empower all employees to be curious about the futures that lay ahead of us in 10, 20 and 30+ years?
