In 2015, POST concentrated on societal and technological trends and their implications for policy.
Drawing on insights from a wide range of disciplines, this research led to a series of POSTnotes in ten policy areas. Each POSTnote considers area-specific trends as well as wider changes in society.
POST developed a set of trends cards alongside the series of POSTnotes. These postcard-sized cards examine the way the world and society is changing.
Cards are used in the private sector as a strategic tool. They encourage thinking about how issues are interconnected and how changes in one area will impact on others.
