Homepage Intro Text

Theme 2017:
Learning Uncertainty

Uncertainty is the defining characteristic of our age. Can we learn to live with it? Can we accept it, manage it and even thrive on it?

We live in an age of acceleration. We are in the midst of a sea-change - a profound, transformative shift in knowledge, experience and perception. It is a new era defined by technology, globalisation, information and, above all, uncertainty.

Our uncertainty is born of the rapid and continuing change around us. Technology is already developing faster than we can learn the skills we need to use it. Information is the world's most valuable commodity. Demographic change, political turbulence, economic challenges and environmental threats confront us. There has always been uncertainty but this is different. We are facing the end of stability.

Are we ready for this new era? Are businesses, governments and societies really prepared for our uncertain future? Can we live with uncertainty? Could we benefit from it? How can we use volatility and instability to our advantage? How can we weather the storms? How should universities, colleges, schools and workplaces adapt? What should employers do now to plan for the flexible workforce they will need in the future? Read more
