Assignment 1: Designing The Future

  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Designing The Future is refer to a preparation or an effort that we make to design the future. Peter Joseph said that “although many of us feel we can prepare for our future by thinking, acting and learning using present methods and values, nothing is farther from the truth – especially in today’s rapidly changing world. Each succeeding generations inherit the values, accomplishments, hopes, successes and failings of previous generations. And they inherits the results of the decisions made by those generations”. So, we as a today’s generation must play a role in the shaping of tomorrow’s world. We should design something that can direct the future; not just one’s own, but that of society in general; and not just for one’s generation, but for those to follow. Not only is science making it possible, but it is now vital.
