BIG ideas of 2021 that will hopefully change the world:
The first one we want to hear in 2021 is the vaccine to treat and prevent COVID-19.
Fight for COVID-19 VACCINE:
Everyone is hoping that 2021 will soothe us from the outbreaks of COVID-19. But mates the updates of vaccines are not very optimistic. Greg Martin, a Dublin-based public health specialist says that the vaccines will take six to nine months for the general public to get access to it. Vaccine diplomacy will be an important issue in 2021 and might accompany fights between countries for equal distribution. Moreover, the emphasis is on the availability of vaccines for low and middle-income countries.
As the first candidate is going through the approval process of vaccine, most likely we will see two or more generations of vaccines over the next few years. So masks and social distancing will likely to remain with us in 2021.
New World Disorder:
Will newly elected US president Joe Biden be able to crumble rule-based International order. The Paris treaty and the Iran deal might be the obvious place to start with.
2021 will bring Racial Equality to the world:
2020 has made companies promise the racial equality. 2021 will hold companies to be accountable for racial equality. The brands are anticipated to stand for racial equality. The famous slogan of 2020, Black lives Matter, will modernize in 2021, and black lives are likely to get equal opportunities. Slogans only will not excite the world in 2021.
The Superpower of 2021:
COVID-19 has shaken the economy of China, but they have rebounded quickly. The United States and Europe, on the other hand, are expected to continue battling with the waves of infection in 2021. The situation puts China in the limelight. They might not win the people’s hearts and minds but will surely succeed in becoming a superpower in 2021.
As the European country’s current priority is to work on the vaccine, China will take full benefit of this distraction.
The US vs China tensions:
Mr. Joe Biden will probably not call off the trade war in China. He will go for the solution to mend the relationship with allies to wage things more effectively. On the other hand, as the tension is rising, countries like Africa and South East Asia are trying their utmost to avoid picking between both powers of the world.
Tourism shape will change:
People will avoid traveling the destinations and will instead prefer domestic flights. The world is, predicted to be less footloose in 2021.
Climate Change will bring opportunities:
Governments will spend on green recovery plans to create jobs and cut radiation. United Change climate conference of 2020 is also due in 2021. Let us see how ambitious country reduction pledges will be in the expected climate change conference.
Companies will have to give reason to employees to come back to the office:
As 2020 has made people work from home and most of them have enjoyed this relaxed period. What would be more relaxing to work from the comfort of the couch? So 2021 will make the companies think about when and where employees can work.
According to Ashley Whillans, a professor at Harvard Business School, The companies may let employees work from home two or more days a week. Some will opt to come three days a week and then two days work from home and then two days off. So maybe the work ratio would be 3-2-2 a week.
New Year New Technologies:
2021 will focus on technology that will make people feel safer. The latest Apple watch claims to have an oximeter detector.
The mobile companies will focus on launching voice-activated smartphones. The airplanes might have an electrostatic sprayers, and the automobile companies will compete for electric vehicle sales. The tighter fuel standards will deploy more electric cars. It will also reduce pollution on the front line.
2021 is the year of unleashing entrepreneurs:
2021, is expected to give the mainstream spotlight to local creatives, companies, and people who will invest in nature. 2020 has made people realize the importance of experimenting with new ideas. So 2021 will unleash number of the entrepreneur to dive in the market.
TIKTOK will become a full-on business model:
It was so naïve of us to think that Instagram and YouTube will stay pure. TIKTOK will evolve into a complete business model in 2021. TIKTOK would a medium to spread information.
Spike in Online Retailing:
2020 has already provoked world the toward online retailing. 2021, is expected to stop people from stepping in the stores and will spike the e-commerce market.
The Wake-up call for other crises:
