Well, where do I start? I am a big supporter of global partnership, co-operation and being friendly with each other as this is the only way we can move towards sustainable development of our world. Our big challenges do not care about borders, nations, ethnicity, religion or profit.
Recent trends in Europe, the US and other parts of the world seem to confirm that the world is moving in the opposite direction and that is why I want help counteract such trends and raise the flag for mutual and sustainable existence instead of confrontation and exploitation.
I do believe it is possible to co-exist without harming others and the environment. However, the human race needs to pull their act together and take a turn for the better. If we keep living at the expense of other people and the environment, the problem will soon take care of itself. Who knows where we may end up but nature will certainly be stronger than the human race in the long run.
The human race carries a responsibility for the planet we live on and we certainly do not currently live up to that responsibility. What kind of planet to we want to leave for our children?
However, it is good that there are people in this world who do care and who gather to improve the situation. One central great initiative is the UN Global Goals for Sustainability movement.
It helps to serve as a platform for people, organisations and companies to get together and develop and exchange ideas and actions to make our world more sustainable. The initiative also helps to give people, organisations and companies a voice to counteract disastrous and backward facing trends in society and politics.
Let’s all work together on this. Feel free to ping me if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to best get there.
