The current global scenario is marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, economic recession, and climate change, all of which have profoundly impacted society.
The pandemic has claimed over 20 million lives and caused widespread job losses, leading to a rise in poverty for the first time in 25 years and exacerbating food insecurity for tens of millions of people.
Meanwhile, the cost of necessities and heating homes has become increasingly unaffordable for hundreds of millions of people, further compounded by the effects of climate change, such as droughts, floods, and cyclones.
Despite this, the wealthiest individuals and corporations have continued to prosper, widening the inequality gap. These pressing issues call for systemic changes and a collaborative global effort to address the root causes of poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation.
