It’s that time of year when we look back in review and ahead in anticipation. At TomorrowToday, we don’t often indulge in the headline grabbing short-term predictions so popular in the media as one year changes over to the next, but this list from Fast Company caught my eye. I think I agree with most of it (although it’s very US focused). Read the full story here – it’s worth the read.
The Issues That Will Shape the World in 2016, by Fast Company magazine
- The refugee crisis
- Climate change
- Data security
- The US Presidential election
- Regulating drones and self-driving cars
- Gun violence
- Global internet access
- Regulating the sharing economy
- Online social justice
Happy new year.
PS, if you want to look back at 2015, I believe it will be listed as one of the greatest twelve month periods in science history. Check out this video, and then get lost in this YouTube search.
