Numerous factors that reduce the momentum towards the sustainability of economic growth and the increase in social welfare do not disappear from our agenda. The power struggles disrupting the steady and consistent growth of the world economy do not allow the markets to calm down; we also get our share.
There is no time to lose to perceive the loss of natural resources. We need to continue life by taking the right steps in the direction indicated by science, recognize the problems in all their reality.
Urgent and common problems faced by the earth stand as a blacklist waiting to be solved in front of all countries. Life is almost like an ebb and flow the waters rise and recede.
It starts from a metaphor to expand the meaning; We need to meet for the purpose of a better life in the main atmosphere of ‘When the Waters Recedes’. While the waters rise, we try to adapt to the changing environment; and as the waters receded, we experience constructing a more resilient life by building bridges between the past and the future revealed by profound remnants.
