Take a time machine to 2040 – how will our world be different?
Wednesday 20 January 2021
1pm - 2pm

Step into a time machine and consider how our world might look like in the future. What are the trends and technologies which could change our daily lives? What challenges do we face? How do we innovate to come up with new ideas? This short session delivered by RGU’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group seeks to inspire new ideas about our future and encourage future entrepreneurs to implement solutions which could make this future a reality. The thought-provoking session walks through a day in our lives in 2040 and how our world might be different – for better or for worse.

As well as exploring the future, this session will introduce the Innovation Accelerator which is open to students, staff and alumni of RGU and NESCol. This programme is looking for aspiring entrepreneurs to solve global challenges and those selected will get access to funding, mentorship, co-working space and more. Find out more and apply by Sunday 31st January 2021 at www.rgu.ac.uk/accelerator

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
