Over het evenement
Program: Lecture and Debate (1h30min) followed by Workshop (1h30min)
Our world is socially, institutionally, and economically in turmoil. This is generally referred to
as a transition: a period of fundamental change lasting several decades. In this first seminar,
(one out of three) an overview will be provided of seven corresponding so-called ‘slow’
trends. These are trends that will mark the next decade. Together, these trends will shape
our future economy in an unforeseen way. This future economy is called the WEconomy.
Based on this concept of a WEconomy, several scenarios will be brought forward that might
or might not emerge in the near future. At the end of this seminar, it will be argued that the
rise of the WEconomy implies a changing perception on value creation and business
strategies. As a whole, this leads to fundamental changes in business models.
