Borders, listening and fiction

Change is the new constant. Was that ever different? In his book "Thank you for being late" New York Times journalist Thomas Friedman describes that the speed of technological change, globalisation of the market, climate change and loss of biodiversity all have a huge impact on the way we work, live, on politics and ethics. He proposes to ‘pause in stride’. A worthy advice in these fast times.

We all move at a pace that appears faster than ever. Though the digital reality has seemingly created enormous possibilities, it has also generated a belief for nonstop reaction. We are more connected than ever, yet at the same time seem further apart from one another: striking contact but no real connection. People seem to have less trust and fear of the unknown is growing.
