UNLIMITED continues its journey by investigating our most valuable asset – time. Many of us are bound to a traditional life cycle: education, work, children, retirement. But this model was conceived before the advent of technology, before formal education was devalued and before our life span was dramatically increased. So why do we do this? Over the next year UNLIMITED will deliver insightful commentary to our changing times, not only keeping up to speed - but setting the pace.
