The action we take today will determine the kind of world the next generation will inherit.
We believe the future cannot be left to chance. The actions we take today will determine the kind of world the next generation will inherit. That's why we're committed to creating better futures, today.
On February 12 we welcomed over 200 delegates, from across the financial services industry, to discover and debate the key issues affecting our futures. Bringing together over 30 experts from a range of disciplines, we debated everything from AI and the ethics of technological developments, to climate change and how much (or little) investment is being made to secure the planet’s future.
Exploring what our children’s future could look like, we considered some of the amazing developments we might see, but also the potential challenges they represent.
One consistent theme came across loud and clear - the time for action is now.
We want to help drive positive change and deliver better futures for all. That's why we've created our 'Manifesto for Change'.
We've also created a dedicated group to keep the conversation going. You can request to join below.

Asking Great Questions
Recently we held our Better Futures 2019 conference in London. We brought together over 30 speakers from a broad range of disciplines to prompt us to think about the multi-generational themes affecting society and what actions we can take to help future generations. Our Chair, Calum Cooper, has written a blog reflecting on the event.
In another recent blog post Calum wrote that we live in the world our questions create. So, if we want a better future, we have to ask great questions. And more importantly we must start to answer them and act. See below to read some of the questions we've been asking:
