Tomorrow’s World: Children in 1966 predict what the world will be like in the year 2000

Well-spoken, cynical, and eerily accurate, in 1966 these kids predicted what life would be like in the year 2000.

Their predictions include:

  • The rise of robots and job loss due to automation
  • The threat of nuclear war
  • Globalization and the destruction of cultures (note: they couldn’t have foreseen the backlash)
  • Population and overcrowding
  • Genetically modified foods
  • Sea level rise. Warns one child: “The oceans will rise and cover England.”

Little did they know the internet would further complicate things.

It’s your turn. What will life be like in the year 2050?
