Creating futures

The future that we’ve been counting on for decades is unsustainable. Our task today, as individuals and societies, is to create a new vision of the future.

Bobby Kennedy said: ‘The future is not a gift: it is an achievement. Every generation helps make its own future. This is the essential challenge of the present’.

It is time we told a new story about ourselves. Are we the late-born children of the oil age, helpless and trembling on the brink of collapse? Or are we the early members of that heroic generation tasked with changing the world – the first generation of a new era of globalized co-operation and eco-consciousness?

Be warned: how you respond may change your life.
