Boost is an Etorkizuna Eraikiz initiative to seek out trends that inspire. Asking ourselves questions we have no answers for. Calling on us to analyse global trends and detect potential future trends. We want to listen to different people, both experts and non-experts, in order to find out how these trends affect people and identify opportunities for the territory.
Boost Encounters in 2022
How we have understood that the main decisive factors of progress change to give way to new variants. How we cannot continue to build progress on knowledge alone, and how a balance between the economy and the planet, or between freedom and dignity, is now essential.
How the search for better sustainability has moved on from just speeches by international and government agencies to the short/medium-term strategies of businesses and organisations of all kinds to guarantee their survival in societies that are increasingly demanding in this field.
In a society with increasing longevity and low birth rates, who will care for us? How do we address care nowadays? Who cares for our carers?
How people self-organise or, more accurately, how they interrelate, on the basis of similarities and common interests, rather than on the basis of origins, age and profession. In particular, we are interested in describing the most relevant tribes at the global level, and determining their relevance in terms of Gipuzkoa. Tribes such as young people, the elderly, the self-employed, immigrants etc.
How the way in which the public's needs are changing, how they are involved in detecting them, how suggestions are tabled, how municipal communities are governed etc. In short, how the world's governance models are changing.
