How We Can Make the World a Better Place by 2030 | Michael Green | TED Talks

Can we end hunger and poverty, halt climate change and achieve gender equality in the next 15 years? The governments of the world think we can. Meeting at the UN in September 2015, they agreed to a new set of Global Goals for the development of the world to 2030. Social progress expert Michael Green invites us to imagine how these goals and their vision for a better world can be achieved.

    @9:24 update: India now has 98.5% households with access to toilets from under 40% before 2014 since Mr.Modi became the PM (Not a Bhakt here, just a mere believer that credits should not be due)

    I personally believe that in order to make the world a better place we should start reporting every small anomalies, disturbances and crimes to the local cops.(I personally called the cops 4 times last 6 months and managed to save a person from a road accident and a women from constant domestic abuse.)

    The second method i believe in is opening more therapy centers that will heal the mental problems of everyone around.

    Five years ago and nothing changed

    External traits create constraints to humanity success, like a virus in a system, the solution, understanding the source of the traits and taking the steps to right wrong and move forward, it requires an external help too.



  11. Elusive Light on April 24, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    We’ll see..



  12. Rob on April 24, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Why does the World HAVE to be a better place before 2030? Why all the rush? Human beings have managed to make the World a complete shithole during the course of their existence and one thing is for certain, that is NOT going to change any time soon! If you don’t believe me, wait and see.

  15. Helen Podot on April 24, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    I really liked how he make his viewers realized its not just all about world being RICH but also it’s about the individuals especially the poor people. That the SOCIAL PROGRESS should be PRIORITIZED.

  24. My Favorite Planet on April 24, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Instead of learning and respecting individual needs systems in place treat people like cattle or machines.
    Throwing them in boxes for labor and profit.
    Humans are mere commodities and people sense it.
    They better know how to hustle, market, brand themselves and follow the herd.
    Uniqueness of thought and vision are not respected even when it’s well advanced unless it has big numbers behind it.
    Where are the great artists, the visionaries?
    Most are slaves like Leonardo da vinci was to the Medici.

    I was blind but now I can see better. For health and enviromental sustantaibility



  26. Starkswood on April 24, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Sadly, many of those goals that ‘we’ the ‘whole world’ agreed upon were in reality drawn up and ratified by an exclusive club of developed, democratic nations with shared middle-of-the-road politics. Most of the world wasn’t actually consulted and doesn’t have the luxury of following someone else’s dream even if it suited their thinking.



  27. M Mc on April 24, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    What about if we don’t want that

  35. KEW LOR on April 24, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    SOME OF US HAVE GOOD IDEAS TO IMPROVE OUR PLANET BY THINKING OF BETTER WAYS TO SOLVE MAJOR PROBLEMS HERE. HOW ABOUT RIDDING ALL POLLUTION WITHIN 3 YEARS, SAVING BILLIONS IN ENERGY COSTS FOR EVERY COLD CLIMATE COUNTRIES, EXTINGUISHING ALL WILDFIRES WITHIN HOURS IF NOT DAYS, DELIVERING NEVER-ENDING FRESHWATER TO EVERY THIRSTY COUNTRY ON EARTH. A NEW PROPULSION SYSTEM FOR ALL SHIPS SAVING MILLIONS IN FUEL COSTS AND INCREASING SPEED BY 50%. MANY MORE BUT DON’T WANT TO BORE ANYONE!!

    Mann will be one of the first useful idiots taken out and bangbanged when his revolution arrives



  38. Michael Considine on April 24, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Depopulation is the best way to lower poverty, UN Fauci Aids experiments helped in facilitating that.



  39. Aladin on April 24, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Such a beautiful speech !



  40. The Sunshine Syndicate on April 24, 2022 at 7:12 pm

  41. Yusuf Nasir Ahmad on April 24, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    This is one of the most powerful and most advanced presentations I have ever seen on the SDGs in a stunning new design. I love it.
    However, what do Current data tells us today? Tedx, it’s time for update or 2nd edition. Don’t you think so?



  42. JP on April 24, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Everyone thinks they’re not part of the "overpopulation" problem

  45. Collin Schultz on April 24, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Truth and facts the world is electromagnetic frequencies and so is consciousness. God and gods is what lower consciousness people in this mostly lower consciousness world falsely create when in truth and facts is consciousness and connected consciousness



  46. D on April 24, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    This is a laughable over simplification and an abuse of scatter plots. Ridiculous 🤣



  47. Veronica Dare on April 24, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    when was this uploaded?



  48. Farri's tales world on April 24, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    The achieved goal of reducing poverty led to bigger environmental issues through economical growth. Economy needs to step back if we want to heal the planet since Economy is the reason for destruction. Will unfortunately lead to poverty again or we find another way of life, maybe like the Amish, whom work hard but respect nature and don’t take part in the pollution. The point being is the more we rely on machines and the economy the more we destroy our planet. No way economical growth will ever make things better, we need to go back to our roots to safe our species.



  49. Tiffany's Edits on April 24, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Generally, white people setting out to impose their ideals on the rest of the world in the name of ‘progress’ always has dire consequences for everyone but them, ijs.
