Education and Creativity studies the future of the knowledge and creative economies in our changing world. The education sector will be key to the continued success of the economy, but will need to adapt to significant changes in its demographic mix coupled with higher social expectations. The opportunity to both learn and employ new skills will need to extend to embrace all ages and sectors of society.

Edge Futures are a series of five books that explore the impact that climate change will have on different aspects of our lives in the future. They are available to order as individual titles or as a complete set. The Edge is an innovative and creative think-tank, sponsored by building industry professions, that seeks to stimulate public interest in policy questions that affect the built environment and to inform and influence public opinion. Simon Foxell is an architect and William J Mitchell is Professor of Architecture and Media Arts and Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
