Taking the Long View
At TEDxExeter 2015 we took the long view back into the past, and explored how it has shaped the world we now live in. We asked about what responsibilities the past places on us in the way we live now and how we innovate. Much current political, economic and personal decision-making is rife with short-termism. So, we also took the long view into the future, and asked how it can reveal and help us to understand the challenges that face us now, and shape the way we live and the decisions we make.
