“The year 2050. What awaits us according to the “vision” of the Slovenian government and its distant future? Are we going to create countless success stories? People are the country’s greatest asset, we are innovative, and change ideas into action. The vision announced by the government seems utopian, at least considering the fact that the social conditions of the individual are deteriorating, and intolerance to the fellow humans is increasing. Corruption pervades every aspect of life. People are getting old. How can we know what is to happen in 2050, if we don’t even know about tomorrow?” – Bojana Križanec
