There’s a Future: Visions for a Better World by BBVA
If predicting the future is particularly difficult today, preparing for it is also vital and urgent. As Albert Einstein said, “we will have the future we deserve.”
This book presents a wide range of articles that encompass many different visions of the future, both in focus and theme. It is a multidisciplinary cross-section designed to map out the basic lines along which our reality is changing and in which direction they are taking us.
It explores the future from very different perspectives, grouped under five overarching themes: Fundamentals, Science and Technology, The Environment, Global Society, and People.
The final chapter details how BBVA, as one of Spain’s leading banks, is preparing itself for this new reality.
The contributing authors are leaders of research and current practice in fields such as nanotechnology, urban design, ecology, demographics, education, and international relations in the globalised world.
