This part of the early 21st century is a time of ‘Great Transitions’. Our ability to navigate these transitions successfully, harvesting the opportunities in the fields of science, technology and policy, as much as steering a course through the risks, will be crucial to our common future.
In this diverse series we will look at how pandemics spread, economic and political governance as well the empowerment of women in Africa, the future of energy, and the transition to a post-carbon future.
