Life at UCB through the eyes of our international student bloggers



The future… We think about it every day. From those banal thoughts like thinking about what we will eat in 2 hours to deep thoughts about the distant future, in 10, 20 or 50 years.

Each of us thinks about the future, but what does it bring us?

What awaits humanity in 10, 50 or 100 years? Well, it’s hard to say because no one knows. No one knows our future, sometimes it’s hard to predict what will happen tomorrow, and it’s especially hard to think about what could happen in 50 years how our world will look.

It is nice to think that in 50 or 100 years the Earth will be a kind of utopia, that humanity will finally take a better path, we will have bases on the Moon, on Mars, we will start exploring outside the solar system. On the other side of the Earth there is no inequality, there is no hunger or poverty, all humanity is united in working for a better tomorrow, for some future generations there will be no wars, no hatred… no evil!

But will it really be so? Will we outgrow our differences for the betterment of the whole world? It is difficult to answer that question, but I think the answer is NO! Unfortunately no…

Nothing in the world gives hope that we will change soon. New wars are being started, this time in the heart of Europe, and 2022 is beginning to remind us of some bad times in history. I hope the rest of history will not happen again and that world leaders will find a solution to end the war in Ukraine and that the suffering of innocent people will finally be prevented.

Furthermore, in addition to wars, climate change is making life difficult for hundreds of millions of people around the world and the situation is getting worse every day.

But we will not be pessimistic, there is good news. Science and medicine are advancing every day and we must all believe that humanity is waiting for a bright and beautiful future. But in addition to believing in it, we must give our little contribution to make it happen… to work on it together!
