Solutions to the challenges of our time
Curbing climate change and putting the exploitation of resources and the degradation of the environmental to a stop. Feeding the world’s growing population. Converting sprawling metropolitan areas into livable centers. Providing quality education and medical care to all people. Creating a more equitable economic and social order... The major tasks of our time could fill volumes and may often seem insurmountable in their multitude and impact.
On the other hand, technological and social innovations are constantly achieving positive transformations. Many people are probably not even aware of the significant breakthroughs that have been achieved in the recent past alone. Smallpox, a scourge of mankind for millennia, has been eradicated within about a decade. Extreme poverty has been reduced massively around the world. More recently, the Corona scare has been mitigated by mRNA technology.
