Critical Global Challenges

Some of the global challenges we are facing are Sustainability, with most sustainability issues require systemic change, and systemic change requires collaboration among all of us to attain positive sustainability changes.

Global Health deals with the fact that one billion people lack access to health care systems and this can be eliminated by design.

Cultural Understanding is the the foundation of communication and the ability of standing back from ourselves and becoming aware of our cultural values, beliefs and perceptions.

Justice and Equality challenges are about braking down the barriers that people face to just solutions and equality of opportunity.

Human Wellbeing looks beyond traditional definitions of health and examines the wide range of disciplines that contribute to our sense of wellbeing.
