Cambridge Global Challenges


This workshop organized by Bond and Forum for the Future addresses what must be done in order to create sustainable jobs and livelihoods for people in developing and emerging economies in 2030.

This workshop will ​bring together cross-sector leaders to stimulate​ new ​thinking​ ​about​ ​positive ​possible​ ​futures​ ​for​ ​low-income countries​ ​and​ ​emerging​ ​economies​ ​in​ ​the​ ​context​ ​of​ ​trends​ ​such​ ​as​ ​automation ​and​ ​the​ ​rise​ ​of artificial​ ​intelligence,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​the​ ​threats​ ​of​ ​resource scarcity​ ​and​ ​climate​ ​change. 

We aim to identify what a proactive,​ ​multi-sector​ ​response​ ​to​ ​these issues​ ​could​ ​look​ ​like, and help you explore the contribution your organisation could make.

The programme will include:

  • An overview of some of the major changes the world is likely to experience over the next 15 years
  • Delegate presentations: future provocations on the future of work
  • Group work: further develop and interrogate provocations
  • Group work: rapid backcasting to identify milestones and the potential for collective action
  • Group work: action planning and networking to explore opportunities for collaboration
  • Reflection on way forward
