Disrupted Balance: Society at Risk
Human society is no stranger to catastrophe, but the challenges the world faces today—a ballooning population, intense global connectivity and the unquenchable thirst of human consumption—have synergised to make disruptions more frequent, intense and far reaching. Humanity possesses the scientific, technological and social knowledge to emerge from the tumult, by building more resilient and sustainable societies.
