‘We are privileged to live in a time of fast and spectacular change, however we must also face more challenges than ever. I believe in numbers, as we have not yet found a better tool to measure the impact of our actions. However, now it is a good time for visionaries as well, for people who dare to bring extraordinary ideas to the table, and it is perhaps the best time to listen more and speak less. We need to listen to each other and withhold from answering important questions too fast, and solely on the grounds of past experience. The present crisis is yet an opportunity to reconsider many aspects of our society and re-invent ourselves as a species.’
