Technology has tied our world together more tightly than ever before in history. News cycles the globe within minutes. Washington State apples are enjoyed in Shanghai, while strawberries from China are dessert in New York. We’ve had enormous benefits from globalization: greatly improved health, better education, knowledge and technology, and advanced infrastructure among them. But there have been real costs—degradation of natural environments and upheavals in social realms among them. How do we fix these very real problems, individually and cooperatively, with ingenuity, care, and respect across the globe? A tall order? Yes. Start here. Start now.
