Summary:
This presentation examines a number of social dimensions that contribute or impact our society and culture with regard to Risk. Are we ready to learn from the past and apply the knowledge in shaping our future? A hypothetical argument based on the contributions of the various factors that the current generation has embraced is discussed. In addition, a framework that can be adopted in aligning our society is explored; thus going beyond being only hearers, but also doers of what we learn.
