As Forum’s resident doomslinger, the recent #ClimateOptimism campaign inevitably provoked a defensive reaction from me. Especially as it arrived hot-on-the-heels of another event that challenged my pessimistic foundations.
A transport revolution is under way. It’s been a while coming. 70 years, in fact, since the tides of car based conspicuous consumption first swept around the world. Internal combustion. More, heavier, faster.
The digital revolution has transformed the way we work, and where we work. Everywhere is now an office - whether it’s the local coffee shop, the beach, or the bedroom. Our always on culture and the rise in demand for flexible working is leaving the physical office space behind.
