Fortune telling and propaganda versus the real challenges facing younger generations - how you can know the difference, how you can make the difference!


How do we identify challenges to begin with? How do we predict where challenges may be in the future?  How do we approach the challenges ahead of us with wisdom, ethics and common sense?

Students will be thoroughly engaged throughout this fascinating presentation. 

Topics to be discussed will include:
  • Singularity – technology and how this will change jobs
  • Pollution and climate
  • Gender Roles
  • Consumerism
  • Intergenerational equity
  • National security – terrorism, war, natural disasters
 
Underpinned by the key themes of 
  • Integrity
