The world is rapidly changing, but are we keeping pace? Do we need to rethink our future entirely?

Charles Handy CBE is one of the giants of contemporary thought. His books on management have changed the way we view business, and his work on broader issues and trends has changed the way we view contemporary society. He now turns his formidable mind to our future.

Society is undergoing a wholescale revision - we are seeing dramatic changes in the way we live, work, educate our children, and govern ourselves. Technology has given us freedom, independence, and the means to do things ourselves, but do we need more to fully utilise our own potential? Is capitalism in its current iteration a sustainable system, and how long can we work with a society built on credit and an economy built on growth alone? Pioneering thinker Charles Handy visits the RSA to chart some of these changes, and offer some creative ways forward.
