Broad changes have conspired to make many adults feel stressed at home and work.
I have searched the word in Cambridge Dictionary while I can't match its meaning to the word 'conspired' in the sentence above.
to plan secretly with other people to do something bad, illegal, or against someone's wishes:
- [ + to infinitive ] He felt that his colleagues were conspiring together to remove him from his job.
- As girls, the sisters used to conspire with each other against their brother.
