Halcyon In Future 25 September 2017

 

As 2017 moves on, it is worth examining the trends that may impact us all, over the years and decades to come. You can see how such trends may unfold, year by year, below. Please contact us for help in creating value from these trends.

On Progress

The Social Progress Index argues, that to truly advance social progress, we must learn to measure it comprehensively and rigorously. When everyone uses the same vocabulary to describe challenges, it's that much easier to overcome them.

Halcyon's own emerging Ethical Development Goals (EDGs) are being developed in a similar spirit.

In spite of spectacular strides in science and technology, and still unlimited ones to come, something basic is missing. There is a sort of poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers - Martin Luther King

This evolving paper will examine the overall Ethical Development Goals (EDGs) that Halcyon is developing to complement the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
