Imagination is the most important tool for anticipating the future!

Will machines, robots and artificial intelligence outperform us in the future? It raises the question: what kinds of skills will we need, what will become valuable? Courage, compassion and curiosity, to name a few, according to Perttu Pölönen, a 25-year-old genius, composer, inventor, entrepreneur and an inspirational speaker.

Future Skills brings together the skills that will help you succeed in an unprecedented and uncertain future. It is a book for those who want to look into the near future from different perspectives, challenge your own thinking and discover new ideas. The more technological we become, the more human we will have to become as well. The future needs a human revolution. This positive outlook gives hope, which you can never have too much.

Pölönen’s personal experiences and stories make it lively, engaging and credible. He is a bright young mind who writes in an insightful and thought-provoking way about the challenges and possibilities of the future. When nothing is certain, everything is possible.
