It is my great hope you are mentally and physically fit. It is another year of 2030 and would like to let you know more about what is happening and what you should know about the world in 2030. A lot has changed since 2020 and you need to know and understand the key issues happening in 2030 and how to prepare yourself well before it is too late.
The power of innovation and technology is continually increasing and affecting almost every sector from education, health, business, and climate change. The world is now connected more than ever, the use of social media, the rise of the fifth generation of mobile communication (5G), and the rise of artificial intelligence has enabled people to be connected to their families, friends and even their properties such as cars and houses.
Despite the existence of technology that keeps us connected, people are lonely and depressed than ever because of the high use of gadgets and less physical interaction between families and friends. I am now traveling along the globe to educate people on how to keep the power of physical interaction rather than being dissolved in computers and high-quality smartphones. I hope it will help to reduce depression and suicide cases because of a lack of interaction between a father and his son or a mother and his daughter.
I graciously ask you to focus on the important skills of today which are artificial intelligence, emotional intelligence, computer related skills, and complex problem-solving skills. Those skills are important for you to master them as they will enable you to answer world tough problems in various sectors such as food, health, and education and help you to successfully impact the majority of the lives of people and make a world the better place to live and not just to survive.
The current population of the world is approximately ten billion people and it continues to increase as the days are going on. The availability of food has been badly affected because of the rise of the effects of climate change such as global warming, changes in rainy seasons, and drought. Despite the use of irrigation technologies and other technologies related to food production, there is still a shortage of food, especially in developing countries. For instance in Tanzania, the tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is losing more ice than ever and this is affecting the tourism sector in the country and lower tourism revenue. I advise you to start awareness campaigns on social media and prepare events to make people aware of the effects of climate change on food production worldwide. I have started a program for young people that helps them to know what is climate change and how it affects food generation and effects in the future economy of the world. I do believe if we all invest in young people, they will use the skills to plant more trees and stop all activities that negatively affect the environment such as cutting trees, burning forests destroying water sources with chemicals and poisons from the industries
The rate of unemployment is increasing and more than ever since the last recorded rate of 5.6 percent in 2017 by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The rise of unemployment in 2030 is due to the rise of technology, especially artificial intelligence, and robotics engineering. Many companies are currently using robots for providing services and few people are employed. Another factor for unemployment is the lack of soft skills especially for fresh graduates from universities. I request you to invest your time to understand the soft skills especially emotional intelligence as it will help you to have proper skills for the twenty-first-century job demands. Thank you very much and it is my hope you will take into consideration what I have shared with you.
