Global Crises Global Solution CLICK

As citizens of the world, we face a number of daunting challenges. For starters, there are approximately 800 million people living at the starvation level, 2.5 billion people who suffer from illness because they have no access to sanitation, 1.1 billion people who still have no clean drinking water, and countless others who have been affected by dramatic climate changes.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where resources, funds, and political will to solve many of these problems are severely limited. Deciding just which problem to address first can be quite tricky. To solve this dilemma the author believes that if we rationally set hierarchical priorities it will be easier to focus our immediate attention on the most serious of global needs.

Weighing the costs versus the benefits for international action on any one issue is a difficult task, and attempting to impose a common cost-benefit framework so that one issue can be compared with another is an ambitious exercise, often leading to disagreement.

There is no question that the Copenhagen Consensus has already started an important global debate on the idea of economic prioritizing of resources, and it is a debate which will most likely continue for many years ahead.

Graham Hill: Less stuff, more happiness

Let’s make room for the good stuff. Environmental consciousness, good design, know how to spend

Hagamos espacio para las cosas buenas. Conciencia ambiental, buen diseño, saber gastar.

A couple of weeks ago my mother shared this article with me. In which the current General Secretary of the UN,  mentioned 5 moral imperatives and some other crucial statements, leaving aside the criticism he has received, and after reading this article there are 4 crucial points that we should be aware of and must keep it in mind, for being earth inhabitants:

  • Leave people out of poverty and promote the economic growth
  • Combat climate change with a new economic vision of sustainable development. “global consensus“!
  • Avoid conflicts, deployment of political mediation missions, instead of deploying troops.”We know how to do this. Our history shows it Guinea, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan.”
  • Disarmament and nuclear non-proliferation

Este articulo me lo mostró mi mamá hace un par de semanas. Dejando a un lado las críticas que ha recibido, siendo el actual secretario general de la Naciones Unidas y después de leer este articulo en el cual habla de 5 obligaciones como pobladores del planeta y otros puntos cruciales que menciona, los que se deberían subrayar son los siguientes:

  • Sacar a las personas de la pobreza y promover el crecimiento económico
  • Combatir el cambio climático con una nueva visión económica para el desarrollo sostenible. “consenso mundial”!
  • Evitar conflictos; despliegue de misiones de mediación política, en lugar del despliegue de tropas. “Sabemos cómo hacer esto. Nuestro historial, en Guinea, Kenya y Kirguistán, así lo demuestra.”
  • El desarme y la no proliferación nuclear

Public awareness

Un poco de conciencia unir fuerzas desde diferentes disciplinas. Entender que algo pasa en nuestro planeta y que es nuestra responsabilidad solucionarlo, es un cliché pero pongamos un grano de arena.
