The Challenges of Our Generation
It seems to me that the environmental and technological factors are deeply installed in the process of forming our future like never before. Techology combined with the economic development creates more connected world and dynamic world. In this era of connectivity and social, inevitable obstacles and issues are on our paths and all of these these changes can overwhelm us fast.
Inequality always existed as a problem for the majority of people. It comes in different forms like ideological, religious, age, sex, job position inequality etc. Too much judgment is based on the stereotypes that we have for people who are different than Us. Only a few can ever put themselves in someone else’s shoes and realize their point of view. Only when you’ll understand, then You can judge.
“Do not hate what you don’t understand” - John Lennon
Environment is also a big issue, especially ecological threats that are all around us. We, as generation have the RESPONSIBILITY to make the ecological situation better for us, and to set the path for every future generation to have a planet that they’ll appreciate and take good care for her. So stop cutting trees and spend the limited resources of the Earth. Stop throwing plastic and garbage in the oceans, rivers and lakes. Be an example for everyone around You.
“We don’t have a society if we destroy the environment.” - Margaret Mead
Technological changes, and the speed of those changes happens at the highest rate at this very moment. The new tech and gadgets that are coming out are a challenge, especially for older generations.
Information travels fast these days too, and lot of the information that has no credibility is shared can easily cause damage and panic. Be amazed that the tech is improving and is offering these possibilities, that someone invented them for good cause, and use social platforms like beBee to share inspiring messages.
And we will not allow the technology to overcome humanity. Not everything has to be viewed through the lenses of a camera. Don’t go on a basketball game just to take a selfie. Just watch and enjoy the horizon, the nature, enjoy the view, enjoy the basketball game.
“We are changing the world with technology” - Bill Gates
So don’t let these fast changes and dynamics overwhelm You. They’re inevitable. Let’s look at all the positive aspects of these challenges that we are facing, and spread them around. And let’s not forget the negative aspects that need to be resolved too, because these are the changes that shape our future.
