With the world the way it is and globalization increasing so is our interconnectivity. I feel that social media has now become the best way to reach a wide scale audience in regards to making positive changes. Take the ice bucket challenge of last year.

Iceland is a country that is closing the gender gap faster than any other. It is a country to look towards as a leader. Such a positive world impact could be made if more countries followed their plan. The fight for women's equality can be helped with Iceland at the front.

When I am 100 years old the traditional knowledge I would like to be retained would be the different types of martial arts I have learned. I feel that martial arts not only keep the body in great physical shape but when taken seriously and applied to life help one lead a more peaceful life. With the increase in technology many different types of hand to hand combat have been pushed aside. This type of training brings people together.

The case study I found was on the Inuit way of hunting seal. Due to the recent increase in demand for seal fat the market has become increasingly flooded.
