"They have a lot of experience, but we have ideas, we have energy, and we have solutions for the now problems and the ones that are coming up... So we need to collaborate."
Those were the words of Natasha Mwansa, when she compared the young activists to the older generation at the recently concluded World Economic Forum Summit in Davos. Not just her, other teenagers from different parts of the world brought the agenda of clean water, climate justice, marine conservation, microplastic environment pollution, reducing carbon footprint, clean environment, refugee children issues, gun violence, women's and girl's rights and smart energy systems to the agenda of a summit that has usually been seen as a group of elitist industrialists plotting for self promotion.
Linking the next generation of Transformers
This is the future that we need to embrace. Every single corporation on this planet. A future where transformers are not limited by who they are. But rather, what ideas they bring to the table for the greater benefit of humanity and life on this planet. We need to collaborate and share and hence increase the significance of Glocality (Global + Local) through the power of technology. archents would be committed to crusading for systems that harmonizes the connecting Life, Enterprise and Information Technologies to significantly increase the Quality of Life.
The only way to sustainable solutions is through the process of Design, Transformation and Innovation. And there is so much for the older generation to catch up and get rid of the debt; whether it is ideas, money, systems or technology.
Enabling the Future of Work
More than 1 billion jobs, almost one-third of all jobs worldwide, are likely to be transformed by technology in the next decade, according to OECD estimates. By just 2022, the World Economic Forum estimates 133 million new jobs in major economies will be created to meet the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
It is not enough to romanticize about the future. We all know from our regular lives, romance sooner than later leads to harsh realities. The future of work will depend on building completely new Capabilities; where the Capability is addressed as a dual term - the Capacity to Transform + the Ability to perform. Irrespective of industry and geography. The economic outlook compellingly demands a mutually inclusive perspective and outreach; one where the five essential skills of Design Thinking, Design, Architecture, Industry Ecosystems and Digital Technology are melded into solutions. And there is a seamless transportation of Intellectual Property (IP); from Conceptualization to Commercialization in a Continuum. The future of work will have to find a conscious way of disconnecting the legacies of the past and anchoring towards a future that in no way resembles anything we have known or experienced yet; be it with respect to structures, synergies and / or systems.
