"2065" the book

Content

The essay "2065 - a viable new world" is about major changes that may take place in the next 50 years. The story is one scenario out of many, but doesn't belong to the science ficion category. All the major changes described are possible occurencies that may take place in the upcoming half a century. This part of the website highlights the 7 chapters of the book. The purpose is to raise awareness and  to initiate discussion on the disruptive changes we will encounter. Statements will hopefully trigger this awareness and initiate the debate.
