Imagining the Gulf in 2030 and Beyond


From our work over the past few years in the Gulf region, Changeist has distilled and packaged a set of macrotrends we expect to impact and shape the region over the next decade or more. 

These include social, economic, technological, environmental and political forces at a high level, which can be used in future foresight exercises by organisations seeking to anticipate and navigate the coming transitions in the region. The material is designed to help drive high-level conversations about possibile futures from different perspectives.


This deck, which contains 35 macrotrends and 15 ‘entities’ or sectors, and a ‘quick start’ activity guide can be used in scenario development, ideation and to spur further research.

To obtain a deck for your own organisation, contact us and let us know how you would like to apply them. Priority given to organisations inside the Gulf region. Others who are interested can contact us to discuss alternative materials.
