Trend Spotlight: Humanity (A visual journey)

In The 5 Trends that will Disrupt EVERYTHING: Macro Forces Shaping the Future, we noted how Humanity, Connectivity, Empowerment, Experience, & Health, are five BIG trends that will affect everything from Innovation & R&D, to Market Research & Insights, Futuring & Forecasting, Brand Strategy & Design to overall Marketing & Strategy in the future.

Today Steven Van Der Kruit, Visionary & International Trends Expert, FIRMENICH FLAVORS, who will be speaking more on the The Root of Trends at our upcoming Foresight & Trends conference, sent us these images that reflect how the need for humanization is becoming crucial and popping up all around us. Take a look:

Embrace the change. Be an agent of change. Tell the story, the one that is True, in a universal way and resonates with everyone. Inspire us!

How will you utilize Humanity to make the world a better place to live, work, and connect?

Such a beautiful article. I have started a blog with a focus on positive psychology and the eventual aim of bringing people together for community projects for the good of humanity. Your images really touched me. Would you like to do a guest post at some point on my blog?
