A big THANK YOU to the World Business Council for sustainable Development for inviting Gerd Leonhard to speak at this event, and for making this video available. More about WBCSD here: https://www.wbcsd.org/ This talk is about how we can make our future sustainable in the wider sense, i.e. as far as energy, environment and technology is concerned. The future is exponential, combinatorial, convergent and CIRCULAR - and we need to prepare accordingly. The talk also touches on the 8 technological game-changers and the Megashifts see www.megashifts.digital. Automation is a much bigger challenge to our society than globalization ever was. Too much of a good thing can be a very bad thing. We should never put convenience over consciousness. We need to include the externalities of technology in all segments of business. We need a digital ethics council!
