Nesta predicts what’s to come in 2020 – Every year, we predict the latest trends, social movements and technological breakthroughs.
At a time when many see the future as a threat more than a promise, our predictions show how we can bend the future in new, hopeful directions. This year, in particular, our glimpse into the future covers some of the major challenges of our time.
Will the climate crisis push us to take action and save the planet? How could drone technology be used in innovative ways? And what kind of trade union do modern work forces need?
