The Ministry for the Future

Established in 2025, the purpose of the new organization was simple: To advocate for the world’s future generations and to protect all living creatures, present and future. It soon became known as the Ministry for the Future, and this is its story.

A vision of climate change unlike any ever imagined, a masterpiece of the imagination, the story of how climate change will affect us all over the decades to come, set in a future that is almost upon us – and in which we might just overcome the extraordinary challenges we face.

An Inconvenient Truth

An Inconvenient Truth is about former US Vice President Al Gore’s campaign to educate people about global warming, a daring call to action, exposing the shocking reality of how humankind has aided in the destruction of our planet and the future we face if we do not take action to stop global warming. This book is written to change the way young people understand global warming and hopefully inspire them to help change the course of history.

The documentary edition directed by Davis Guggenheim features a slide show Al Gore has presented over 1,000 times to audiences worldwide. May 2016 Al Gore interview

TRIZ for Engineers

TRIZ is a brilliant toolkit for nurturing engineering creativity and innovation. This guide supports problem-solving workshops run by Oxford Creativity, started by Karen Gadd in 1998. 

TRIZ enables greater clarity of thought and taps into the creativity innate in people, transforming random, ineffective brainstorming into targeted, audited, creative sessions focussed on the problem at hand and unlocking the engineers’ knowledge and genius to identify all the relevant solutions. TRIZ for Engineers helps unlock and realise the potential of TRIZ making the individual tools straightforward, and the problem-solving process systematic and repeatable. TRIZ turns good engineers into great engineers.
