In the next three chapters we examine three seismic shifts which, taken together, represent a revolutionary threat to the world as we know it – but also an historic opportunity for change. They are:
- The Perfect Storm of environmental and other issues surrounding and including Climate Change
- The Wellbeing Imperative which is fuelling a resurgent Citizenship in the face of falling unhappiness – and a shift away from relative materialism, posing a threat to the current model of corporate Consumer capitalism.
- The new, Digital Democracy and the power of engagement and Citizen Politics generated by the online revolution.
