NHEO Talks: Building a Shared Vision for 2020
Tuesday, December 7, 2010 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
NHEO Talks Charlotte
Are You Ready for the Future? - "Building a Shared Vision for 2020"
Sometimes our understanding is limited not by our abilities, but by our vision. Today, we don't see all the opportunities or challenges that we will face in the future. The vast possibilities of a great future will only become a reality if we make ourselves responsible for that future.
What will life in Charlotte be like in 2020? What will children, customers, consumers, enterprises and society want in 2020? What habits and needs will people have? What kinds of technologies will they use to make life easier?
It is estimated that only 50 million Americans will be qualified to fill the 123 million high-paying, high-skilled jobs that will be available by 2020. America ranks only 25th in math and 21st in science among 30 developing countries. NHEO Talks Series reflects NHEO’s view of what a globalized world might look like in the future.
At NHEO Talks, we ask 10 thinkers to share their view on the drivers of the future and how will impact our community. NHEO Talks offers a unique over-the-horizon radar for those looking to shape bold ideas for a better world.
