spiked, in collaboration with Orange, has conducted a major survey of experts, opinion formers and interesting thinkers. Our aim was to identify some key questions facing the next generation - those born this year, who will reach the age of 18 in 2024 - and to start a discussion about some possible answers. The survey will roll through the summer, with a summary report published early in August.

Orange is an optimistic company. Our business is about enabling people to get the most out of life: today, and in the future. Enlightening the Future 2024 asks important questions about how humanity will fulfil the promise of the future. While the views expressed in Enlightening the Future 2024 do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of Orange, we are proud to partner with spiked to create a forum for those views.

Within the next year or two, particle colliders in Europe and the U.S. should begin providing data to steer theoretical physics toward the next level of understanding of the fundamental nature of matter beyond the standard model
