We live in an era of contradictions: we’re more connected than ever, but we’ve never felt more isolated and lonely. We can access all the information we need, but feel insecure about what we actually know. Our health has never been better, at the same time new epidemics like obesity and mental health issues are soaring. Human rights and other social movements have empowered millions, while at the same time inequality seems to be an increasingly bigger challenge. Our industries are cleaner and more efficient than ever in history, while its impact on our climate and environment is devastating. Technology and science have brought about unimaginable progress, but it is time to critically review the results, adopt a long-term view and consider how we can design our systems, regulations and governance to create communities that benefit everyone. From (mental) health and economic equality, to pollution and access to resources, we’ll discuss and devise clever ways to overcome our current and impending social challenges.
