After millennia of relative stability, there has been a noticeable shift in the balance of rural and urban life. In every corner of the world, people are leaving the land behind to look for opportunities elsewhere.

We have been slow to change, but will need to adapt to meet the challenges of the future.

Greater knowledge is the key to advancing beyond the limits of the past.
On the foundation of our elders’ wisdom, we will build new customs.
