Take a look at this session recap from our last #Innovation Summit where industry experts and academics from @ManpowerGroup @LinkedIn and @Stanford discuss the advances in #AI and it's impact on humans

    The IPCC says global net human-caused carbon-dioxide emissions must be reduced to zero by 2050 to keep global warming below 1.5°C. In the absence of such action, it is predicted that the Earth’s temperature will increase to over double this, to 3.2°C by 2100, with catastrophic consequences.

Change is happening but how can we accelerate progress to make a bigger impact?

What can businesses, governments and NGOs, do to promote a more sustainable future?

    Lucky country: Australia’s long boom

When the economy was last in recession the web browser had just been invented and Bryan Adams topped the charts. Today’s quarterly GDP figures will show that Australia now matches the Dutch record for the longest stretch of economic growth in a developed country: 103 recession-free quarters. The roots of growth lie in reforms of the 1980s and 1990s—tariff cuts, a floating currency and central-bank independence. A Chinese-fuelled mining boom cushioned the financial crisis. Construction, immigration and a weaker currency have averted the kind of bust that followed earlier resource bonanzas. But Australia will limp, not sprint, to the title. Household spending slackened along with wage rises in the first quarter, so growth is likely to be flat or even negative, the second time in three financial quarters. The two consecutive shrinkages that would mark a recession are unlikely later this year, but not impossible. Politicians hope their luck continues. Photo: Cover Images #australia #AusInnov
