The third series continues our journey across the globe looking at the cutting edge science and technology that will shake up our lives, our economies, our businesses and the world as we know it.
Horizons strives to showcase answers to the big questions that mankind faces now and in the future. We’re urbanising, ageing and becoming more connected; the global issues are evolving.
We go in search of the ideas, the research and the developments that are striving to tackle the planet’s biggest challenges. How mankind is going to cope as our population grows from seven to a predicted nine billion by 2050 is an underlying theme. Feeding, powering and nurturing billions more is a daunting task, and how we achieve this is the big unknown.
This series therefore calls upon some of world’s great minds to capture their thoughts on the pressing issues, with Nobel Laureates, industry leaders, top economists and leading scientists all offering up their ideas in this latest voyage of discovery.
