  • Manifesto of Ideas
    Posted by # Probably42 Jun 20

    The Manifesto of Ideas collects together our best ideas from the various P42 inputs. We've just produced a substantially enhanced new version and a short summary of it. If you are new to Probably42 this is a good place to start.

     

    We've even produced a list of the 50 Top Transformative Ideas which you can review in seconds to get the flavour.

     

    Just go to 'Manifesto' in the navigation bar to access any of them. 

  • Retiree Foundation Proposal
    Posted by # Probably42 May 22

    Retirement is the first time in life when we have no structure to guide us, which is both good and bad. We have just published a proposal for creating a Retiree Foundation. The objective of the Foundation is to release the potential of individuals in later life for their benefit and for the benefit of our society, by providing a Retirement Structure.

     

    Do take a look, we'd love to hear your comments on the proposal. Just click on the 'Ideas' tab in the navigation.  

  • Elderly Social Care
    Posted by # Probably42 May 22

    Do you have views on Elderly Social Care? We've just published the outputs from both our longstanding Ideas Group known as Deep Thought and a New Online Ideas Group known as Zero Gravity.

     

    Just click on 'Ideas' in the navigation bar to see these.

     

    If you might like to join one of our Probably42 Groups just use the 'Contact' link in the footer to express your interest and we'll send you more details.
