Theme: Post Corona & Life

"Changed Life since Corona Outbreak, and the Hope of Human Kind"

Many people have been sacrificed, and the streets blocked.  Invisible viruses made us lose our usual and peaceful life.  Maybe, it occurred because we were not afraid of the nature and broke the lives and circumstances. Though humankind went through the crisis, they developed and distributed vaccines fast and strengthened prevention of epidemics.  Though humans are in a better condition than before, the viruses which evolve threatens them.

 Our life changes so much as to divide our life into preCorona and postCorona. Untact cultures became usual, such as on-line based home working, remote working etc.  Maybe, life in vertical space called metabus will approach us naturally in the future.  We have to turn lemons into lemonade and recognize that the earth is a community on which we have to help and lean each other.  In addition, we have to dream 'hope' together so that we can make the earth an everlasting life base by respect and consideration.
