2025: Shaping a New Future free pdf In 2025: SHAPING A NEW FUTURE Gordon Brown charts the massive technological, demographic social and political forces - including the explosive growth of a global middle class, reinventing our world. He shows that by 2025, for the first time in human history, the majority of people will live in urban areas and one billion will have a university degree, families will be under pressure as a minority of young Western adults choose marriage, and Brown asks whether and how we can convert a new wave of scientific and medical progress into a more sustainable and widely shared prosperity which ends avoidable poverty. Drawing from his wealth of experience as a world leader, Brown identifies as the main drivers of future change not just the familiar change makers - IT, globalisation and medical invention - but also new forces: global migration, the new demands of the new global middle class, a revolution in the way we educate our children, the growth of global pressure groups and the restoration of' ethics. He suggests that if the 20th century was the century of women's empowerment through ending women's exploitation, the 21st will be about a higher form of empowerment - women's leadership as a force for change. But as he argues, the future is never fixed, and he shows how we can all play our part in promoting and managing change in ways that make the world a better place for all our children.

About Gordon Brown

Gordon Brown served as Prime Minister and Leader of the Labour Party from 2007 to 2010 and as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1997 to 2007, making him the longest-serving Chancellor in modern history. He has been the Member of Parliament for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath since 1983 and is now also the United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education. Brown's time as Chancellor began with the granting of independence to the Bank of England and was marked by sustained investment in health, education and in the reduction of poverty and overseas aid. As Prime Minister, Brown's tenure coincided with the global financial crisis, and he was one of the first to initiate calls for coordinated global action and chaired the London Summit of 2009. Brown has a First Class Honours degree and a Doctorate in History from the University of Edinburgh and spent his early career working as a lecturer. He is married to Sarah Brown, Chair of the Global Business Coalition for Education, and they live in Fife and London with their two sons, John and Fraser. He is the author of several books and the founder, with his wife, of Theirworld, a charity to whom the profits of this book will be donated.
