Is it my business at all? Aren’t there tons of people already taking care of it? Maybe.
Well, imagine you’re looking at earth from space. You’ll see a beautiful but vulnerable planet in the middle of a vast black space.
Then you zoom in. You get closer. And the more you get down on earth, the more you’ll be able to notice nasty things. You’ll figure that this planet has many crises: water, food, pollution, climate, violence, oppression, overpopulation.
Let’s be honest with ourselves – These issues are huge. They are all MAN-made. They were created over decades and centuries. Would our world be better without all of them? I’m sure everyone agrees.
Who is solving them? – They are beyond what one government can solve alone. So it’s great when a few governments push a roadmap. But the majority of governments don’t seem to actually care. Or they simply can’t move anything because their influence is too small.
It’s our future, our home – If one can’t rely on the world’s institutions, then who will care for our home? Maybe UNO, charities, companies, activists – Yes, there are initiatives. But is it enough? Will it be able to change something for good?
We don’t know.
