Welcome to Trend, a new publication from The Pew Charitable Trusts. Trend offers perspectives from eminent voices, in a range of disciplines, who are seeking to inform and improve our world.

In this second edition of Trend, we explore the theme of putting knowledge to purpose, looking at the many aspects of invention today. From engineering to public policy to the internet, human ingenuity constantly changes how we analyze risk, prevent and treat disease, find information, travel, steward our resources, and govern ourselves. 

You’ll also find ways to keep in touch with Pew, follow our work, and offer your own thoughts.
