What does the 50 something generation do now that the industrial revolution is fading?

The industrial revolution is on a fast decline and the 50 something generation is caught squarely in the middle of it. When I left school in the early seventies factories were already on a decline or shutting down and we are now well into the communication age of social media. What do we do if we are to leave our mark on the world as a generation? How do we adapt to a fast changing landscape with few rules and many questions?
