Where do we see the world moving towards in the future? I can't predict what will happen, what innovations will be created, and whether or not our actions will create a positive or negative change. That probably sounds pretty pessimistic but I feel we currently live in a world that is more reactive than proactive. We often hear about damage done to the environment and global health rather than the hearing about active research being conducted to create positive solutions that will ensure that the world will still be a viable habitat for life in the future.
And I think the way to create solutions is first to accept that there is a problem, and understand the complexity of the issue itself. And the best part is, there's Google to help you do it.
My vision for the future is to create a world that is more aware of the world around them. Aware of the issues (local and global), possible solutions that already exist, and aware of the fact that we have to stop being just reactive and learn how to be proactive. I am definitely no expert myself, but I hope to become more aware everyday.
I agree. I think understanding the problem plays a big role but also, looking for actual solutions and not just showing that what we are doing now is the right solutio!
I think that we have moved past needing to recognize that there is a problem because we are aware there is one already. The scary part is we don't know what we can do to effectively tackle the problem.
