If you look back at the past ten years, there have been many major changes, and it looks like this period of massive change is set to continue at an even greater speed. Technology is disrupting our lives - Netflix, Amazon, Uber among others have changed the way we consume entertainment, shop and move. Earlier this year Hyundai announced that Electric flying taxis are set to be airborne, by 2023.
Technological changes, particularly in relation to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are ensuring tasks will be completed more efficiently, and more accurately, and so removing the need for many administrative and production roles. The backdrop to all this is a world which is shifting socially and politically, with major environmental challenges. We are in an increasingly globalized world, where it’s difficult to sometimes know where we should focus our energies in order to stay ahead.
So, where will we all be in 2030? This question is consuming the focus of all the major international organizations and educations establishments and was a key platform at this year’s Davos. This issue was further highlighted by Barack Obama in his address on education: "I’m calling on our nation’s governors and educators to develop standards & assessments that don’t simply measure whether students can fill in a bubble on a test, but whether they posses 21st century skills like problem-solving and critical thinking and entrepreneurship and creativity.’
Furthermore, this year the World Economic Forum launched its Reskilling Revolution Platform, which commits to job training and reskilling one billion workers over the next decade in recognition of the fact that millions of jobs are set to be displaced in the near future
