In 2025: SHAPING A NEW FUTURE Gordon Brown charts the massive technological, demographic social and political forces - including the explosive growth of a global middle class, reinventing our world. He shows that by 2025, for the first time in human history, the majority of people will live in urban areas and one billion will have a university degree, families will be under pressure as a minority of young Western adults choose marriage, and Brown asks whether and how we can convert a new wave of scientific and medical progress into a more sustainable and widely shared prosperity which ends avoidable poverty.

Drawing from his wealth of experience as a world leader, Brown identifies as the main drivers of future change not just the familiar change makers - IT, globalisation and medical invention - but also new forces: global migration, the new demands of the new global middle class, a revolution in the way we educate our children, the growth of global pressure groups and the restoration of' ethics. He suggests that if the 20th century was the century of women's empowerment through ending women's exploitation, the 21st will be about a higher form of empowerment - women's leadership as a force for change. But as he argues, the future is never fixed, and he shows how we can all play our part in promoting and managing change in ways that make the world a better place for all our children.
