Videos of this talk will be online soon
Keeping pace with a digital revolution
The internet is rapidly evolving to play a central role in society, transforming social, cultural, economic and political landscapes.
The benefits are clear, but are societies equipped to keep pace with the consequences of our increasing reliance on this technology?
Schools resources coming soon
Adapting to an urban future
Humans are rapidly becoming an urban species.
Global population has passed 7 billion, 3.5 billion people are urbanised and over 1 billion people now live in slums.
How will urban centres keep pace with predicted continuing growth? What are the visions of tomorrow's cities?
Educating for tomorrow
Living in an increasingly globalised society offers both opportunities and challenges.
How can education best prepare young Britons to fulfil their potential in a rapidly changing world?
No schools resources for this challenge
Persistent poverty in Britain
Britain is the world’s fifth richest country, yet poverty in Britain is rising. With paid work failing to reduce poverty for many, how can Britain best tackle this growing issue?
Can the UK ever be sustainable?
Our way of life is placing an increasing burden on the planet, but how realistic are visions of a sustainable future? How can business, politics and the creative industries help create a sustainable future?
Natural disasters: how to improve?
How can we improve our response to natural disasters and ensure lessons learnt benefit vulnerable communities worldwide in the long-term?
Not In My Back Yard
With pressure on the UK’s ageing energy and transport infrastructures mounting, is it time to put projects of national importance ahead of local concerns? Or does this bypass our democratic right to object?
Importing goods, exporting drought?
The scale of global water consumption needed to produce what we use and consume has a dramatic impact around the world. From the food we eat to the clothes we wear, discover the hidden cost of Britain's consumption?
Britain’s ageing population
As the baby boom generation approach retirement, Britain's population is ageing.
Discover the changing nature of retirement; the importance of older people in the workforce; the increasing pressures on public services and how Britain is adapting to an ageing society.
The future shape of Capitalism
Will the recent financial crisis and the downturn in the global economy change the shape of capitalism as we know it today?
Migration: skills and the job market
Too often controversy surrounding UK migration and what impacts migrants have on our economy and society is based on myth, fear and falsehood.
Explore some of the issues and misconceptions around changing European workforce patterns in the 21st Century.
London under water
What is the threat of flooding to London’s people and infrastructure? How will current defences cope with enhanced flood risk to the capital over the next 30 years?
