What do all of you think will be the greatest challenges facing humanity in the next decades?

I am just curious what the people on here think.

I think the depletion of natural resources will be the big one. I also think though that most of the future challenges are increasingly interrelated and hard to separate from each other. Grace Doughty · 4 years, 7 months ago

@Tim Ye i believe that a conflict between them is unlikely now a days, those countries are still very dependent on each other economically, engage in an armed conflict provides only desavantages for both of them. Gabriela Rosin · 3 years, 9 months ago

The quest of power might led us to a third world war. Other than this, the way young generation is being brought up, loss of moral values and ethics will be a huge problem. See, it keeps everything in place. Aisha Nasir · 4 years, 6 months ago

I think religious extremism and attempts to grab power by non-state actors will be the biggest challange because countries can resolve issues by diplomacy but handling non-state actors is very tough. Armaan Bhullar · 4 years, 7 months ago

From the ratio of participants answering correctly challenges on this forum, I think that the greatest challenge facing the humanity, is an excess of mathematicians compared to a shortage of physicists:) N K · 4 years, 7 months ago
