Beyond Davos #WEF2019 it's all up to us

Is it irony that some 1500 private jets are estimated to have landed at the World Economic Forum in Davos where climate change is a key topic?

We at Microbide believe significant and meaningful changes for the betterment of World Health require us as individuals to take actions. Every little action can have a big impact. Education and action are key. We raise the flag of awareness about impending pandemics.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, presenting at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos was asked to sum up the state of the world in one sentence. His answer was not enough. “We are in a world in which global challenges are more and more integrated and responses are more and more fragmented and if not reversed, it’s a recipe for disaster.” Just like the 1500 private jets and celebrities looking to deliver sound bites and be gone, are just one glossed over comment away from disaster.

UN Secretary General Guterres spoke of trends of more people moving - and with that and global warming- more disease will travel further and faster. Our CEO, Mary Skelly, talks about steps we as individuals must begin to take now. Hear directly from her here on soundcloud.

Use these takeaways to start the self help movement for global change.

It’s not governments nor large corporations but individuals who can innovate, be creative and disrupt the status quo.

It’s back to basics - when it comes to sanitation, stopping pathogens and vector borne disease, you know, mosquito driven illness like Dengue Fever, Malaria and Zika. Sanitation, cleaning and education at every level. This is what back to basics means to Microbide. We’ve got new technology but technology alone is not enough. Join us on the path of educating every one of us to actions we can each individually take.
