Does the younger generation value profit more than the people who help create it? Is it harder to induce a positive behaviour change, such as respecting diversity, among older people? Is the dream of living a well-connected global life taking us away from our local culture? Do our cities really provide the opportunities that those ‘across-the-ditch’ boast of?
Forum for the Future is your chance to raise your voice and let your opinion be heard. It brings together students, opinion leaders, academics and local community to provoke public discussions on steaming issues.
Business commentator Rod Oram will facilitate these debates, to be live streamed.
