There's a Future : Visions for a Better World
The book presents eighteen essays that explore the future from very different perspectives, grouped under five overarching themes: Fundamentals, Science and Technology, The Environment, Global Society, and People. The final chapter details how BBVA is preparing itself for this new reality. The contributing authors are leaders of research and current practice in fields such as nanotechnology, urban design, ecology, demographics, education, and international relations in the globalised world. Presenting their arguments with rigour and objectivity, they reject fatalism and instead affirm their conviction that there is still time to build a better world for future generations.
