The greatest challenge facing humankind is not climate change, or extreme inequality, or terrorism; it is our inability to think long term. We are living in the age of now.

Here, leading public philosopher and bestselling author Roman Krznaric explains how we lost sight of the future, and introduces the seven simple, practical ways that we can change our thinking today to give our children, and our planet, a chance at a better tomorrow.
