The World between Yesterday and Tomorrow
Podgorica, June 11-13, 2020
Looking back in history can be understood as being stuck in the past what can be detrimental in many ways. Can we and should we just forget and forgive all that has happened earlier? Looking back to see forward should be more desirable and necessary.
What is holding us from moving forward? Possibility to understand the life only backwards? Should we not be prepared to take advantage of opportunities when they arise? It has to be understood that even if we fall on our face we have to live forward.
While the past can provide a sense of security, it does not define future. In contrary the future welcomes us with an incredible variety of choices. New knowledge followed by technology, new mobility, climate change, globalization, high urbanization and many more result in great changes in human behaviour and environment what often determines future in unknown and unpredictable way. Obviously in a constantly changing world it would not be possible to move forward by mostly looking back and considering things of past.
It is not possible to go back and change anything in the past. In contrary moving forward is unknown. Does human have the power to move forward without appreciating history?
