You know it. Rising numbers of consumers know it, too. In 2020, we live inside a climate emergency. Meanwhile, millions will no longer tolerate the social damages that are all too often the result of business as usual. Now, a huge – and necessary – systemic change is coming. It’s time to find a new model: a more ethical, sustainable consumerism. One that renews and enriches individuals and the societies in which they live, and exists in harmony with the planet we share.
The revolution is here; the opportunities are vast. In this opening session, we will arm you with the framework you need to survive and thrive.
Join Global Head of Trends & Insights David Mattin as he presents 5 consumer trends – from INTERVENTION SEEKERS to REDEMPTION NARRATIVES – driving expectations around the search for a more ethical, sustainable consumerism.
Pause and refresh.
Demands for a more ethical, sustainable consumerism will effect a profound disruption in every B2C industry in the years ahead. Scary? Sure, but the opportunities to innovate, delight new consumers, and win in entirely new categories are huge.
In this second trend session, Managing Director Henry Mason will explore 5 trends – from OPEN SOURCE SOLUTIONS to LEGISLATIVE BRANDS – that can fuel you in a mission to do the right thing and win the future.
