The Future of Travel with Dr Rob Grenfell and Rohit Talwar


If you're anything like us, you've probably been wondering what the future of travel will look like in a COVID-normal world. With the expected pillars of modern travel, like open borders and free movement, now a distant memory, is the urge to leave our home countries dimming? And what about once the pandemic has passed? Can we one day expect to fly from Melbourne to London within a few hours? Will space tourism reshape the aviation industry? And then there’s climate change – where does that fit in to the future of travel? In late 2020, Mike (desperate for a tropical holiday) joined a Zoom call with retuning guest Dr Rob Grenfell and global futurist Rohit Talwar to unpack where we can expect to go (if anywhere at all). Rob is the Director of Health and Bisosecurity at the CSIRO and has talked to the future of health with Mike and the Futurists World team for a previous episode. Rohit is an award-winning thought leader, author and founder of Fast Future, a research and insights business that specialises in the fields of futures and foresight.Rob and Rohit are uniquely placed to talk to this evolving topic and they bring genuine insight to the discussion. So, amidst all the turbulence, can we ever hope for blue sky travel again?While Rob and Rohit each predict that travel and tourism will boom once more, they agree it will look different – both in the short term and long term.  It's time to fasten your seatbelts and get ready to learn all about the future of travel. https://futurists.worldPlease subscribe to the Futurists.World YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqK50xsZBwnm_QT1Q7_wLMgLike Futurists.World on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/FuturistsWorld/Follow @futuristsworld on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/futuristsworld/Follow @futuristsWorld on Twitter https://twitter.com/FuturistsWorld

Futurist Rohit Talwar on Thinking the Unthinkable and Reframing Positions of Power to Positions of Responsibility

The Social Change Diaries

We kick off our 5th season with Rohit Talwar, the CEO of Fast Future, a UK based research and insights business that specializes in the fields of futures and foresight. In this dialogue, Rohit and Vanessa discuss the implications of the groundbreaking events that have occurred in the first half of 2020. In Rohit's words: "This has been quite a good rehearsal for how we prepare better for the future. Whether it's climate change, collapse of financial markets, radical breakthroughs in science and technology- we should now be more open to those things and more willing to think the unthinkable...Hopefully we broaden our lens, and start moving from talking about people being in positions of power to owning the fact that they're in positions of responsibility, walking the corridors of responsibility, and their real job is to exercise that responsibility to create a fairer, more inclusive, and more sustainable world for all."
