Zero hunger: a reality or an illusion?

According to the World Food Program (WFP) 821 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That is about one in nine people on earth. Even more one in three – suffer from some form of malnutrition. The consequence is worse on children. Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five, that is, 3.1 million children each year (World Food Program, 2018). In a world characterized by disturbing rate of hunger, especially in most developing countries, one of the fundamental sustainable development goals has been to combat hunger through zero hunger. The question here is, is zero hunger really something we can achieve in today’s world or is it just an illusion?

The elderly population and discrimination in the global health

According to International Population Report 2015, elderly people make up of 8.5 percent (617 millions) of global population, the age range of 65 and over. Elderly population is rapidly growing in our world population. Due to their richness of life experiences and wisdom, they are one of the pivotal groups in our population, and most of them are politically active voting in political elections in Finland. However, there is a lack of enough workforce to work in caring of elderly people in Finland. The Finnish local news says that elderly people are having a hard time receiving care from health professionals since there is not enough nurses for them. By contemplating with the fact that there is not enough workforce for elderly people, we may have many questions such as “Is there any stereotyping ideas against elderly?” “If so, do people think critically about those stereotyping like they usually think critically about the stereotype against gender, sex and human rights?”

Väärinymmärretty markkinointi

Törmään usein erilaisiin käsityksiin markkinoinnista. Onko se mainostamista, sisällön tuottamista digitaalisiin kanaviin, myynnin tukemista ja liidien tuottamista? Vaikuttaa siltä, että ihmisten arkikäsitys poikkeaa siitä, mitä markkinointi kokonaisuudessaan käsittää.
