Dr. Abigail Canales Ibarra: Creating a More Just and Equitable World
Dr. Abigail: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Marie Curie once said, "You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful." In light of pressing global issues such as the ongoing pandemic and climate change, it is crucial that leaders exhibit empathy and humility while promoting inclusive collaboration across borders and institutions. As we approach the last seven years to achieve the SDGs, it is essential to reevaluate our methods and find ways to empower and unite the youth toward achieving sustainable goals.
