Five great challenges of our times ..
The five great societal challenges of our time (according to me) are
1. Waste management, bio-degradable and non-bio-degradable
2. Urban management, especially housing, roads, recreation
3. Transportation and traffic management especially looking at low transit times
4. Environmental sustainability management, including water conservation and
5. Healthcare management, ensuring proper living and recreation environments
If one keeps age-old economic problems of countries, security issues of individuals and societies aside, these modern issues will continue to challenge mankind in the future.
These are also the areas which offer great promise of innovations in the coming years. Innovations which are not only profitable for organisations, but beneficial for societies, countries and mankind in common.
Innovations in these areas will be appreciated and will have greater impact on humanity continuing to live and thrive on this planet.
Let us concentrate our thoughts in the coming years to ensure a simple, just, society ensuring equal opportunities for people, irrespective of colour, caste, belief, age or sex.
Let this be the mantra in the hearts and minds of every individual wanting to see a better earth for him and his successors.
