What will humanity look like in 20 50? Which skills should we be cultivating in an age of ceaseless technological progress?

Finnish inventor, composer, and futurist Perttu Pölönen argues that the next revolution is a human revolution. To counterbalance the world we digitalized, we need to develop creativity, perseverance, compassion, and curiosity - those same soft skills that give our lives meaning and set us apart from machines. What can we get from you that we can't get from Google?

Join Pölönen as he takes a practical, personal look at our ever-changing technological landscape while investigating our ability to respond, adapt, and evolve as a society. In the end, his curriculum for the future will empower you to use your uniquely human skills to master a decidedly uncertain future.
