|1. Less work and other work
Many jobs will be automated away. Not so: deeply human jobs centered around: creativity, empathy and hospitality. Robots will do it better. Humans will do it more humane.
|2. Universal Basic Income
Prepare for UBI because the traditional division of labor and wealth distribution is dying. Without new fair solutions, at least some people go populist.
|3. Triumph of the city
Cities make us richer, smarter, greener, healthier and happier. Prepare to be part of it.
|4. Hotbeds for the 6 C’s
Cities breed the competencies we need in the 21st century: Creativity. Critical Thinking. Collaboration. Communication. City’s Urban Nomads want two more C’s: Cool and Clean. (And: open. And: diverse.)
|5. Handmade Urbanism
Cities as the hotbeds for community initiatives and new participatory models. Everywhere.
