During the prolonged strain of the Covid-19 pandemic and due to game-changing long distance technologies work-life synergy emerged, dissolving the barriers between office work and home life: business leadership aligning with personal priorities.

Work-life synergy has motivated countless people to reflect on their life, priorities, focus on what is important, openness to trying new methods to bring balance and desire to improve the welfare of our world connectedly - overcoming fear, division and hostility. Many economic and social issues came to light including a global mental health crisis. Our world sorely needs to heal in many diverse, urgent ways. One of the threats is dangerously overlooked. Our planet’s soil is in grave danger of extinction. Over 2 billion people worldwide are afflicted by nutritional deficiencies. 52% of agricultural soil globally has degraded. By the year 2050, $23 trillion worth of soil will have been lost, spurring the risks of mass migrations, violence, and irreversible humanitarian crises… Unless we address this challenge now.
