Thanks to capitalism, democracy, and advanced technologies, we currently live in the most affluent and convenient times in human history. We are surrounded by full of unprecedented opportunities and possibilities to make our lives happier and more meaningful.
In exchange for those benefits, on the other hand, we are facing a wide variety of social and environmental issues such as climate crisis, biodiversity loss, plastic pollution, economic disparity, and racism.
By 2050, the world’s population will be 10 billion people, and it is believed that the size of the global economy will be two times that of 2016. However, there is only one planet that gives us all the resources we need to thrive. Now is the time to understand that infinite growth is not possible. Now is the time to change our actions and our way of thinking.
We should not compete in the world anymore. We should compete for the world. Without leaving anyone behind, we should achieve an inclusive, sustainable economy. This is the common goal for everyone living in the 21st century.
