It’s always fun to see what the scientists and futurologists have to say about how we can expect to live in the future.

Christmas, the New Year and the celebrations that go with them are over, spring still feels like it’s an age away and getting through the final weeks of winter can be a struggle. In acknowledgement of the fact that late winter can be tough, and in the belief that individuals can help each other to make the tough times better, the Blue Monday campaign was started back in 2009 by the Canterbury College.
