Values

Personal values are unique to every individual and can loosely be described as a set of beliefs or intuitive feelings inside our heads. They act unconsciously as a guide - telling us how comfortable we feel about different situations, 

Please see below a growing and non-exhaustive Halcyon list of values that we can try to live by:

Questioning Change - Work
Work
Halcyon In Future 31 May 2019

 

Forum for the Future identified key questions regarding the future of work:

  • What kind of skills will our future workforce need? How might they be different from the skills needed today? How can educational needs and mindsets shift in response?

  • We also now need to ask, what sort of ‘talent’ will economies need? Where might the precise value in what people can do lie in future? How will this impact pensions and social security? 

  • How will we determine the rights of robots - a new class of workers?

  • What will be the future of unemployment: will more people choose it, or be in temporary/flexible/freelance employment?

  • How will team structures change? Will more people be working in teams, or alone?

A taste of things to come?

Geopolitical trends, 2011

The future of global power is likely to include more South-to-South development strategies, new issues in territory and sovereignty, and the potential for the collapse of states.

For example, imagine a world with a strong China reshaping Asia; India confidently extending its reach from Africa to Indonesia; Islam spreading its influence; a Europe replete with crises of legitimacy; sovereign city-states holding wealth and driving innovation; and private mercenary armies, religious radicals and humanitarian bodies playing by their own rules as they compete for hearts, minds and wallets.

Hunger trends, 2011 Halcyon In Future 30 May 2011

A new study into food security called for urgent action to avert global hunger, claiming that the current system is unsustainable and will fail to end hunger unless radically redesigned.
