The art of
successful change
 

Editorial

Creativity
a fresh look

“Intelligence is what you use when you don’t know what to do. Creativity is what you use when you don’t know what the end result will be,” says Richard David Precht, philosopher and publicist.

When children are encouraged to use their natural creativity, it benefits them in many areas throughout their lives – for example, with their language and problem solving skills. And for adults, creativity will become an increasingly important key skill in the future.

Creativity

Creativity
High-rise Farms

Agriculture currently uses 80% of our arable land and 70% of our drinking water supplies. In 2050, the population is estimated to reach 9.5 billion people, meaning additional arable land the size of Brazil will be required.

Farmers could use a lift to harvest their crops instead of a tractor.
