Old global certainties and structures are collapsing, as the recent US election and Brexit vote have vividly demonstrated. A new international order is emerging.
This journal was created by LETTERONE, in conjunction with The Brewery at freuds, as part of the Global Perspective Series. The purpose of the platform is to explore the new emerging economic era, the Indigo era, from different perspectives, including education, religion, politics, economics, history and business.
Exploring the rise of the Indigo Era, how it will impact the global economy over the coming century, and why we need education, creativity, entrepreneurial infrastructure and digital skills to allow humankind to realise its economic and creative potential in this new age.
Nearly 60 per cent of millennials believe we need radical change, not just incremental change. Understanding and combatting the disconnect between the elite and average people will be absolutely vital for re-establishing trust in the Indigo Era.
We need to have an inclusive global digital economy, but half of the world’s population remains offline. Politicians and policy-makers need to encourage free access in order to help as many people as possible get connected. But with connectivity comes risk. We need new human rights for digital citizens.
