Logical thinking, emotional intelligence, and adaptability to change can help prepare us for the technically advanced world of the future.

Due to advances in technology, the landscape of work and jobs has changed significantly in the last 30 years. Some industries have progressed rapidly, while others have declined, which has shifted and disrupted standards of living and career aspirations. As the relationship between virtual and real becomes ever more blurred, how can we prepare for the next 30 years?

Join us for the annual Milad-un-Nabi Lecture, to be hosted at the Ismaili Centre London on Wednesday 21 November. Entitled The Arab Spring — Quest for Social Justice, this year’s lecture will be presented by Masooda Bano, Professor of Development Studies at the University of Oxford. The presentation will be followed by an on-stage conversation with Sarah Bowen Savant, Associate Professor at the Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations. The event is due to begin at 8:30 PM GMT, and will be webcast at the.ismaili/live.
