The year 2011 has seen an unprecedented number of social revolutions, military conflicts and natural calamities. These along with the economic slowdown make the world's challenges appear more complex than ever. However, we are also more interconnected today than at any point in history. The ongoing European-debt crisis demonstrates the impact that one country's economy can have on the world as a whole. Issues like climate change, increasing food scarcity and shortages of water, among others, require a collective response -- we need the whole world to tackle these problems together.
In order to address these challenging issues, one needs to have broad vision and a calm mind. To achieve harmony, one needs to be able to deal effectively with conflict -- both within and outside.
