I was talking with my son, who challenged me to think of the most important area to tackle in order to progress the World’s issues.
After spending some time explaining there won’t be just one thing to tackle first, we need to tackle everything in tandem, I came to rest on Education as a useful first step.
The more we educate ourselves (as this is in our control), the more we can understand the World.
The more we understand the World, the better placed we are to help remedy the issues we face.
Clearly there’s a lot of information out there, so we’ll all have our natural biases into what we research & learn more about.
However, the more we as a collective learn about anything, the better the chance of making change for the better.
This applies as much to our everyday lives as to Global issues. For if we get better at understanding our own knowledge gaps & start to learn more about issues that affect us directly, the more we all collectively make positive change.
Lots of little positive, personal changes quickly sum to make a big difference when we all do it.
If we learn more in order to collaborate better with our family, friends & acquaintances, then our lives start to feel better.
