Political figures such as Joko Widodo and Matteo Renzi outline their plans for reforms, Hillary Clinton focuses on closing the gender gap and David Blaine reassures us that magic can still amaze.
For much of 2015, the world’s divisions will draw the most attention. While some economies are moving ahead, others are in danger of slipping back into recession or experiencing a fiscal deficit. Nationalism is on the rise even as the West argues over how to respond to a rogue Russia and rampant jihadists. The West will have to balance its concerns over Saudi Arabia's human rights record with the immediate concerns of counter-terrorism and regional stability within the area. It remains to be seen how independent King Salman will operate from the previous regime but his economic and political leverage will remain undiminished.
Journalism in 2015 will continue to be under the microscope. Whether it's the right of journalism to express itself freely and be independent of political control or the dangers of reporting from war torn countries where – thanks to their insight – we see the human tragedy of politics as it’s played out in the streets.
In a time of rising tax and recession it isn’t all gloom though, sporting and speed records could be broken and cinema-goers will delight in a new Bond movie and a new Star Wars sequel too. NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will also give us a fleeting glimpse of Pluto.
