Allianz Partners commissioned Futurologist Ray Hammond to anticipate and envisage some early patterns of change which are likely to shape this new world. The findings include:
- Home: our home will no longer be a place to spend just evenings and weekends, it will become a multi-functional digital fortress.
- Health: digital health technology will become the norm, including teleconsultation, encouraging rapid adoption of wearable health technologies.
- Personal mobility: road travel will return to normal levels; major cities around the world will continue reorganizing infrastructure to encourage the use of micromobility.
- Travel: Rigorous sanitation measures will be adopted throughout the leisure and tourism industry and leisure air travel is likely to return to pre-COVID levels only after a few years.
