The year 2015 was filled with disruptions. Social media went commercial with buy buttons on Facebook and Twitter. Tesla’s Powerwall changed the energy power game (despite Opec’s prediction that 94% of cars will still be oil-powered in 2040), and a burger was lab-grown to “bleed”.

At the same time 52 of the largest companies in China signed the China Accord to reshape the global built environment on green principles; driverless cars hit the road (Google is only one of 25 brands that want to occupy this space); and Nasa confirmed that there is water on Mars (and that astronauts ate food they grew in space).

In 2016, we will transit through one of the most disruptive, turbulent times in human history.
