Megatrends

image of Megatrends

The current pace of global change has already had a decisive impact on the Arctic. To understand the current and likely future situation in the Arctic it is important to acknowledge the pre-conditions, challenges and tendencies at work here. Some of these developments should be characterised as megatrends because they overarch and impact on everything else. They are trends deemed so powerful that they have the potential to transform society across social categories and at all levels, from individuals and local-level players to global structures, and eventually to change our ways of living and thinking.

Urbanisation

Urbanisation refers to the process through which society is transformed from one with predominantly rural characteristics in terms of economy, culture and lifestyle, to one which can be characterised as urban. It usually also includes a process of territorial reorganisation, leading to a shift in the location of inhabited areas while impacting both population size and the types of economic production processes.
