The World in 2030

In 2030, will advances in medical science mean we never have to die?

With fossil fuel stocks declining, how can we use plastics to help protect the climate?

How will we provide for the food, land and energy needs of a global population of over 8 billion?

The plastics industry is serious about understanding and planning for these challenges that lie ahead of us. For this reason PlasticsEurope turned to world-renowned Futurologist Ray Hammond to investigate how life will evolve over the 25 years.    
The result, a visionary and inspirational book called The World in 2030, was launched to the world in Brussels in November 2007.
