JOHN STORM/Special to Bullet News
People today have never seen such a rapid change in the world, human relations and technology.
In a recent study of students from Grade 6 to 12 in Toronto, researchers found a record level of fear and anxiety among the young people, largely because they don’t see stability in the job market or even their own relationships.
A small glimpse into the future will take place April 16 at the Trius Winery, part of Hillebrand Winery on Niagara Stone Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
An organization called Research Matters, in collaboration with Brock Univeristy, will bring in four professors to look into the future, says Carrie Kelly, manager of research studies.
Brock professor Debbie Inglis, an expert in wines, will predict how climate change will sharply affect growing patterns and varieties. Tima Bansal of Western University peeks into how the lines between government, business and society will blur. Rupp Carvieau of the University of Windsor addresses how consumers will be able to choose their own energy source by 2030. It is also expected that a Lakehead University professor will assess changes in building supplies.
Anyone interested in attending must register at yourontarioresearch.ca/life-in-2030. There is no cost for the event. which begins runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
I will be the moderator the event.
