The Greatest Challenges of Our Time


The world has undergone an unparalleled transformation in the past 100 years. The population explosion, the astoundingly rapid developments in science and technology, and the changes in lifestyle in industrialized nations have also created major problems and imbalances. One of the most critical changes is that humanity now, for the first time in history, is able to destroy the ecosystem that we are so dependent upon.

In “The Greatest Challenges of Our Time” Laszlo Szombatfalvy identifies, analyses and assesses four mega-threats to humanity – climate change, other large-scale environmental degradation, political violence and extreme poverty. He also outlines various opportunities of overcoming the threats or, at least, minimizing risks while searching for a more effective global decision-making body.
