In September 2015, 193 countries from the General Assembly of the United Nations met at the historic Sustainable Development Summit and agreed to jointly solve the major problems threatening the planet: from the fight against poverty and inequality, to universal access to water, health and education. The agreement was shaped into a global plan of action consisting of 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030. The 2030 Agenda sets out an ambitious but feasible scenario for a desired future, which drives us as humankind to put in motion concrete initiatives in the present if we want this collective vision of the future to become reality by 2030. The time is right: The world is in a position to take disruptive technological strides to break old habits and hopefully make reality exceed expectations. But technological strides alone will only be aligned with this 2030 Agenda if they go hand-in-hand with substantial social changes in the way we consume, produce and interact. And though society may well be demonstrating its ability to generate new forms of collaboration, great doses of talent and creativity, these new forms of collaboration call for coordination and alliance structures that we have yet to build. Why not design them together? Change is inevitable - let's act now. Let's act together.
