About this Report
It draws on the ideas and analysis that led to the development of four exploratory scenarios described in Report 1 of the ICSU Foresight Analysis exercise. In particular, it uses the same ‘drivers’ that were identified through extensive consultation.
This is one of many potential scenarios that could be imagined and is not designed to be a prediction but rather a mechanism for exploring how we would like the future to be and how ICSU might positively influence this. It is deliberately designed to be aspirational and to some extent normative.
