Let`s take a couple of examples, such as recycling and becoming vegetarian. The reason for these examples is because it`s the typical «I want to change your behavior» topic, where on the one side someone tries to influence people to change their behaviour, and on the other side a person has to struggle with listening to a person trying to change them.

We need a Google Analytics for the world`s problems. The SDGs are a nice indicator of what we actually need to do, and companies like DNV-GL are mapping out the potential.
