Anything is possible in anytime…

Risks, opportunities, threats…

And uncertainty…

Nowadays people live in the world of uncertainty, and it seems that will continue…

Impact is visible on Nature, business and economy as well

 In order to overcome these phenomena and turn back to normal lifecycle, acting globally is crucial. Scientists, educators, civil society organizations and sector representatives draw attention to the need of personal characteristics on individuals and leaders

Those are respectively ability to cope with, intellectual mindset, ethic, respect, critical thinking which bring benefit to society and humanity.

 It is impossible for us to find natural sources to meet demand with our current consumption habits. It is clear that wars make it worse for humanity and our world. Livelihoods, erosion of social cohesion caused by migration, infectious diseases, environmental problems reaching foods and clean water and many other problems are continued to be governed with uncertainties without being resolved.

 In the world of uncertainties, we should be able to understand and analyze crises, the risks and opportunities. It is possible to turn uncertainties into opportunities instead of admitting as a disaster. Also leverage from uncertainty is a matter of rising rational solutions in scope of better quality for life. As a citizen of this country or this world and human being, everyone has to overcome challenge.
