From the interview:

What kind of world will Gen Z live in 20 years from now?

That's one of the questions that Charles Kenny aims to answer in a new book targeted to 12-15 year olds in Your World, Better: Global Progress and What You Can Do About It, published this spring.

Kenny, a senior fellow at the think tank Center for Global Development, explains that over the past few decades — despite wars, droughts and disease — life has been getting better for billions of people around the globe in almost every way, and will continue to do so for years to come.
