The 2000s welcomed a 21st century in which Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Big Data, Augmented Reality, and a Cloud-Based digitalized society has led to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Most experts agree that the 2020-2030 decade will be critical for Humankind, since present societies will change at an exponential rate with Exponential Technologies. Therefore, it is urgent to identify the challenges and develop solutions/responses.
The 2030 Agenda, based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), is just a roadmap for a planet in dire need of disruptive solutions for the global challenges that we are facing. The 2030 PLANET Initiative, a Virtual Educa project shared with multilateral organizations, government agencies, academia, the private sector and the civil society, has the potential to be a key-triggering factor for the 2020-2030 period.
