About The Misk Foundation

Young people are coming of age in a world that is more connected and more fundamentally changing than at any time in human history. The fourth industrial revolution, of transformative technologies, is disrupting economies and will affect the way we live, learn, work and contribute to our communities. It is not enough to merely adapt to these developments. They must be harnessed to deliver new frameworks for how our societies and working lives are structured and new opportunities shaped.
