The SDGs have been established at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development. This was held in 2012, in one of the biggest cities in Brazil, namely Rio de Janeiro. The main aim of this conference was to come up with set of integrated global goals that have been set to help humanity face future challenges that are related to the environment, economy, and politics.

Why are trends so important? Trends are needed for creating a new or adapting an existing experience
Why do we need trends? According to the Chairperson Stein of the Community Session on 7.02.2023, trends provide organizations and individuals, understanding of the market, and future directions. Besides that, with the help of trends, companies are able to do research on different kinds of aspects (that are based on trends) to get to know their target market.
