What's your dream job for 2030?

Person looking futuristic

At the moment you might want to be a footballer, pilot or pop star when you grow up.

But experts say in 20 years time, there will be loads of jobs that don't even exist now - you could be a space pilot or even a weather police officer to make sure no-one steals our clouds!

So what's your dream job for the future?

Would you like to make body parts for humans and robots? Or be in charge of journeys in a time-machine?

Whatever job you'd like to do in the future, we want to hear from you!

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
