Meet Dorchester's Class Of 2030
What will life be like in 2030?
Futurists say more change will take place over the next 13 years than in any previous time in human history. (Of course, that's their job. These same folks said we'd be flying around like the Jetsons by the 1990s.)
Futurists tell us that by 2030 the average person in the U.S. will have 4.5 packages a week delivered with flying drones. They will travel 40% of the time in a driverless car, use a 3D printer to print hyper-individualized meals, and will spend most of their leisure time on an activity that hasn’t been invented yet.
They say 80% of all doctor visits will have been replaced by automated exams; that a growing number of highways will be designated for driverless-vehicle only; and that the space tourism industry will establish regular flights to space hotels.
Who knows if any of this will come true?
What we do know is that Dorchester got a glimpse of its future in mid-April when Dorchester Public School held its roundup for the 2017-2018 Kindergarten class.
Dorchester's future looks bright with this sharp group of kids.
These Longhorns should inspire all of us, regardless of age, to help plan for Dorchester's coming years in the areas of business, housing, population growth, school growth, and quality of life.
The future starts now.
