THE EDITORS' POINT OF VIEW

As Co-Editors of The Network, we are excited to share with you our summer issue.

Each issue we create focuses on a theme developed from current events. We want to inform our readers about relevant events, provoke them to think, and move them to act. In February 2022, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a body of the United Nations
responsible for studying human-induced climate change, released its Sixth Assessment Report. It states that the climate change solutions in most countries are not effective and are not being implemented fast enough to make a difference. These alarming facts moved us to ask the question “Does Human Progress Mean Earth’s Destruction?”
