LinkedIn : 24 Big Ideas that will change our world in 2021

"No one saw 2020 coming. At the close of 2019, economists in the U.S. talked about the prospect of full employment, we expected Brexit to dominate headlines in Europe, and Japan was poised to open its doors to the world as host to the Summer Olympics ..... COVID-19 happened instead. "

"Every December, LinkedIn editors ask our community of Influencers, Top Voices and frequent contributors to share the Big Ideas they believe will define the year ahead. This year, in the shadow of a once-in-a-century pandemic, we offer a selection of predictions and thoughts on where we go from here — at work, at home and everywhere in between. "

"This is by no means a complete list, and we invite you to join us! What Big Ideas do you think will emerge in the year ahead? Share your thoughts in the comments or publish a post, article or video on LinkedIn with #BigIdeas2021." — Scott Olster
