Are we genuinely unlocking the full capacity of all humans? Or are we obsessed with unlocking the economic dreams of the few – and thereby subordinating the many to be, at best, bad robots?

During our ethnographic research time poverty was often cited before financial struggle, even in the most difficult economic circumstances. Unlocking time and creative capacity will be a key ingredient to children and families being architects of their own futures and participating in their environments, forging new crafts and developing key characteristics required for the next revolution and an age of automation.
