What do you want to be?

What will the future be like? Experts say that in 2050 people will get much older, robots will do a lot of work and the climate may change. Jobs in the future will change too. We will need more doctors, more care workers for elderly people and more robot engineers. And we will also need people who can stop the climate change!

Maybe in ten years time, there will be many new jobs. You can still become a policeman, a pilot or a movie star. But you could also be a space pilot, a robot engineer or a climate expert.

What’s your dream job for the future? Would you like to make body parts for robots? Or travel through space with a time machine?

Whatever job you’d like to do in the future, we’ve got one advice for you. Choose something you really love to do!!
