The Edit: The Next Generation

How the past can help our future, why letting go is essential to leadership and more in this week’s #TheEdit.
22nd Oct 2021

With COP26 fast approaching, all eyes are focused firmly on the future. Climate discussions have forced a change in perspective when it comes to time; we can no longer afford to only think about the rest of our lives – as long term and sweeping as even that sounds – but instead, we must consider the billions of lives that are yet to exist. 

Future generations are looking back at the decisions we make now. The next generation is relying on us to pass on a world that is not only habitable, but flourishing. 

This is our edit of the global conversation on purpose.
