Top 10 emerging technologies of 2015

While never without risk, technological breakthroughs promise innovative solutions to the most pressing global challenges of our time. From zero-emission cars fuelled by hydrogen to computer chips modelled on the human brain, this year’s 10 emerging technologies offer a vivid glimpse of the power of innovation to improve lives, transform industries and safeguard our planet. To compile this list, the World Economic Forum’s Meta-Council on Emerging Technologies, a panel of 18 experts, draws on the collective expertise of the Forum’s communities to identify the most important recent technological trends.

By doing so, the Meta-Council aims to raise awareness of their potential and contribute to closing the gaps in investment, regulation and public understanding that so often thwart progress.

What is The Free World Charter?

Let's make everything free The Free World Charter is a statement of principles that has the potential to optimise life on Earth for all species, eradicate poverty and greed, and advance progress. Neither political nor religious, these ten short principles could form the foundation of a new, advanced society that uses no money, is free, fair and sustainable. They are based solely on nature, common sense and survival. The Free World Charter is now widely considered a logical progression out of the failing mechanisms of today's society, and a natural step in our evolution. Why we need it In case you haven't noticed, the world has become a very hostile place. It does not have to be this way. As the predominant species, we humans have failed to acknowledge the great responsibility that comes with our great knowledge and power.

The time has come to make some fundamental changes to our way of life, which has become both unsustainable and unjust. In a word: money.

Both of these are an outcome of heraldry. In these practices there are different unofficial design rules/costums, about colors, placement, proportions, typography, and aestethics in general. This proposal is accurate according to the regulations regarding flags. Centered in the flag, seven rings form a flower – a symbol of the life on Earth. Theory of Change Community.
