A map of human problems

A map of human problemsI want something I can’t find on the net: a visual interactive map of human problems and where we are along the various paths to solutions. I want everyone to be able to interact with it, add to it, vote on it. We have all this information, so organize it. Who can help? Google? I want to zoom in on a problem to see the edge technology with details explained so anyone could understand it.

As far as the problems we face, here is one interesting list, The Grand Challenges for Engineering as determined by a committee of the National Academy of Engineering.

Find out what committee members said about the challenges at the news conference where they were unveiled.

Will we ever work together to make all of our lives better? I hope so.

Yes it would be nice to have everything combined neatly and in a browsable manner, that is a slightly separate issue that is in the process of being resolved, the issue that data access is limited to certain groups of people, though again this is more or less, if not completely resolved, pending collation of that data in a usable format… one… Read more »

a lot of human and environmental based problems and solutions are already ‘mapped’ by governments in europe… Voting granularity is provided by the ability to opt in (or sometimes opt out) of particular choices in solution options…. What you seem to be asking for is socilism.
