Get Ready For The New Work Order

The pace of change has never been so great nor so disruptive as it is today. Today's young people will need to innovate in business, communities, government and the global realm to solve emerging challenges and create a fairer society. To do all this they will need to be able to navigate the new work order - where whole career professions are coming into existence and traditional jobs are being swallowed by automation. So how do we prepare our young people for this future?
