  • To respond to global demand and population growth, energy production will have to increase by 75% between now and 2050. The fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas) that we use currently use on a massive scale are becoming increasingly rare and are highly polluting, wreaking havoc on the climate.

Tomorrow, music will be capable of adapting to our moods and offer us more than just entertainment.

  • What will communication look like in 2050? First, the internet will be everywhere. Researchers and scientists from around the world are working on ways to make this happen, for example with self-sufficient balloons equipped with wifi to cover digital deserts.

  • The oceans are at the heart of the terrestrial climate machine. Without them, there is no life. However, they are subjected to significant changes: heating, acidification, pollution, a loss of biodiversity. In 2050, we will do all it takes to preserve them.

  • In 2050, demand for agricultural products will have increased by at least 70%. To meet these needs, we will have to produce more, but also more clearly and using less energy. New technologies will help farmers meet these challenges. Connected robots will support them in their daily tasks.

  • Today, virtual reality headsets are reaching the masses and can already let users dive into spectacular new worlds. From our couches, we can now float through space, fly over New York, or zip along roller coasters. But, what will it be like in the future?

  • This episode will show how innovations in construction are burgeoning: 3D printing, material salvaging... In cities, homes will be modular and ‚Äúintelligent‚Äù, and the growing population will lead us to explore new spaces on Earth and even other planets...

  • What will our cities look like in 2050? How will they be able to accommodate the one million additional people who arrive every week? The challenge is enormous. To reduce the impact on the planet and the energy footprint and optimize exchanges within megacities, digital technologies will be crucial.
