The world in 2025

The World in 2025: How the European Union will need to respond" represents a significant contribution to
the policy-making process of the centre-right in European politics. It is a remarkable piece of work, drawing on the
efforts of a large number of people across the European Ideas Network - the network think-tank sponsored by the
EPP-ED Group to bring together elected political office-holders and advisers, academics, outside experts and
representatives of civil society.

The World 2040

The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies had its 35th anniversary in January
2005. For that occasion, we look ahead rather than back and present a possible view
of the World of 2040 A.D. with special attention paid to the Scandinavian countries.
This scenario for 2040 is both explorative and normative. It is our proposal for a possible future, but it does not, of course, rule out other possible scenarios as long as they
satisfy the demands for realism and internal consistency; across a span of 35 years,
the uncertainty is considerable.

Shell Global Scenarios to 2025 - Supplement

The Global Scenarios to
2025 are structured around
both pre-determined trends
and critical uncertainties.
The predetermined trends
are common across each of
the three of the scenarios.
The critical uncertainties,
which overlay the relatively
certain trends, are used to
build credible alternative
visions of what the future may
hold. The contrasting ways in
which these uncertainties are
resolved critically shape the
alternative scenarios for the
global business environment.

The scenarios are built around two forms of government
intervention – labour market regulation and increased public investment – and are structured round four themes mentioned earlier in our report:
skills priorities – the focus of the sector integration
