The current world population is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030, 9.7 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to latest United Nations forecasts. The latest data show that about one in eight people still lived in extreme poverty, nearly 800 million people suffered from hunger. 1.1 billion people were living without electricity, and water scarcity affected more than 2 billion people. People everywhere, including the poorest and most vulnerable, should enjoy a basic standard of living and social protection benefits. Demographic and social changes, loss of biodiversity and the disruption of a number of natural cycles are among the threatening costs towards sustainable development.

I am a Portuguese and was living in Czech Republic in Pardubice. This city has about 90.000 inhabitants. When you arrive in Czech Republic you can experience wide and things that you probably may never thought exist in this country. For example, when you travel in Czech Republic, especially, by train or bus you would think that you are living in unreal paradise where water and coffee and also music/movies/entertainment during your travel are for free. When you go to buy tickets you see a machine with over 20 buttons in bus stop, since they sell tickets depending on time and local public bus ticket  costs about 1 euro or less. You may take a public transport ride  for 300 km for 5 euro with coffee and water for free.

Ты очень тщательно его устроил для себя, создав там уют. Ты в безопасности. Только тебе нужно позаботиться, чтобы ничего не посмело нарушить эту искусственную стабильность. Избавь себя ото всех рисков. Но это не все. Зачем же совсем отгораживаться от всего? Можно просто перестать подвергать себя всяким опасностям, трудностям. И в этом очень помогают технологии.
