Thumbs up regarding BREXIT. The Governor of the Bank of England remains highly optimistic, saying there were temporary setbacks as to be expected, but now the UK’s economy is set to fire on all cylinders after the tumultuous Brexit process is complete.

Investors and business CEOs are also saying the economic impact of the UK’s divorce from the EU will be either negligibly negative or mildly positive — whilst the UK’s newly found freedom to negotiate and enter new trade deals will unlock altogether new supply chains for UK companies, boost exports, and spur the broader economy.

GLOBAL STRATEGY

Multi-lateralism is fast accelerating a change of the world order, with immediate consequences for the United Kingdom and her present and future interests

We are not simply reacting to the status of other nations, but developing and establishing both our own position and a shared one in this new, quickly changing global community

With our great economic prosperity and power, as with all nations, there can be no future place in obscurity.

OBJECTIVE

.

Toward the Future State – Innovation and Change

.

One objective is to engage a very high impact manner of presentation, displaying the grass roots quality of life in the present time and central to this, the massive infrastructure development both enriching and supporting not only the northern region, but the United Kingdom as a whole.

.

This is the future vision, the future reality.

.

One evolving example for Sheffield (though not confined to the city) is the plan for Aerotropolis, the new airport city, and which is set to create a staggering 73.000 new jobs. Another, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre – Factory 2050, which is the U.K’s flagship of research and innovation in cutting edge manufacturing, the redevelopments already in progress for the city centre, and the new Meadowhall shopping complex. Not to forget the ideal health care model (free to all citizens) and equally, a world class education system, and with connectivity via a futuristic transport infrastructure (to include HS2 high speed rail, at a cost of 120 billion uk pounds – set to create 200.000 jobs) .

.Though the future state is envisaged, it is not a static condition, nor is it simple. Neither is there an end point, but this briefly is what the future state means :

.

.A reappraisal of our values, our social relationships  – what it means to be a citizen; our lifestyles, and interests, as individuals, as a society and a state

The smart city – within a wider interrelated system of smart cities

The content and form of our education and understanding. The way we acquire it.

The emergence of novel types of work and the relationship with  / accompaniment of highly intelligent machines

Travel – novel forms of mobility

The new environment; recreation and entertainment

The food we eat and how it is produced

The quality of the air we breath

New, clean and efficient sources of energy

How we purchase things and what we purchase

The applications of cognitive neuroscience and AI in the public domain – humanoids

The implications for law and order, defence / military and intelligence

The means of protecting the universally valid, most important economic, political, national and other public relations, their inviolability – the ideological, social, psychological, legal framework

Our colleagues and friends across the world; the new ways we will share while evolving in tandem with them

Beyond our current domicile, the utilisation and occupation of space

.

As stated, initially, our primary focus was confined to Sheffield, but obviously the City is a part of an interconnected system that includes the nearby metropolis of Manchester, as well as that of Leeds, Birmingham, to name a few – all constitutive of the Northern Powerhouse. It cannot stop at that, because the future state is the whole of the United Kingdom, a nation part of a global community.

.

Below is a link to the wider United Kingdom economic and geopolitical context in brief.

.

We can say that the message is ideally intended to rally everyone to understand and welcome the future state, but realistically the message can only be inspiring in the ways this transformational era requires.

.

It has to be stated that we are not engaging subterfuge so to make a point, that the message herein is accurate in its entirety and as demonstrated to be the case.

.

Though this is primarily about the United Kingdom, the pace of innovation and change is of course a worldwide phenomena and running parallel. If one looks toward certain EU countries, to the United States, China and Russia, the same is happening there and will continue so to do. The United Kingdom is a nation, as likewise elsewhere, who prides on the well being of all citizens. Life here is forward looking, and in the present filled with a plethora of experiences that are multifaceted and extremely rich. This is because we have some of the most able people in control and who fully understand our citizens, their needs and rights. Life here, as explained, is also futuristic in novel ways and these ways are to become very much more apparent as the future vision becomes the new reality, the globally interconnected / shared reality.

 

.A note on the presentation : We decided to briefly engage a subject area, initially in a somewhat superficial manner and then return later during the cycle with far greater depth of detail.

.

Welcome to the journey to 2030 and beyond.

We are not a commercial organisation.

Header. Galileo Satellite Navigation System

.

Note : Galileo Sat Nav satellites are in orbit – 18 of a planned total of 30 (European Space Agency).

The Galileo satellites weigh approximately 700 kgs (1,543 pounds), are equipped with antennae and sensors powered by two 5-square-metre (53.8 square foot) solar wings. The EU aims to use Galileo to tap into the global market for satellite navigation services, which it estimates will be worth 250 billion euros (225 billion uk pounds) by 2022. Also, that around 6 to 7 percent of the 16-trillion euro EU economy depends on the availability of global navigation satellite signals.

.

The government is currently examining the feasibility post Brexit, of our own U.K. Sat Nav system which will equal, likely surpass Galileo and the US GPS systems, including the Russian GLONASS and China’s COMPASS.
