How Helping Each Other and Sharing Knowledge is the Future
In this era of communication, with the Internet leading the charge, it seems like most people have the burning desire to share their knowledge with the world.
The democratization of knowledge is now a hot topic, where most of us can agree on that education should be affordable and reach every corner. But it doesn’t only depend on academic institutions and governments. We play a role here.
Helping each other and sharing knowledge, all the things we know, is the future of our society and the reasons for it are abundant. We will address five solid reasons why.
Fueling the Community’s Capacity to Develop New Ideas
If we achieve to transform the way our own communities share their own knowledge, a whole renovated process of innovation could take place. By sharing different points of view and fueling the debate, all members in a society can become remarkably capable of developing new ideas.
When problems take place in our society, only a selected group of people seems to handle the situation by analyzing, creating, and applying potential solutions. The ideal scenario is the one where we all participate as creative individuals with problem-solving capacities. But the only way to massively achieve this is by stop being overprotective with what we know.
Close the Skill Gap
The skill gap has always been a problem for the society in general, slowing down progress and causing stagnation for the economy. This issue has become even more prominent as the technology was widely adopted by the business world, now being present on every single level of the productive sector.
When we help others while sharing knowledge without conditions, we are making difficult subjects more approachable and begin to close the skill gap. Becoming more familiar with different areas of knowledge makes the whole educational process easier to digest.
Put Education in the Vanguard
Imagine a society where people choose to not help others, hide what they know, and give little to no notoriety to being educated and literate. What could the members of this society possibly represent in the future?
Humans are social individuals that find important motivators in others. When a community decides to be “allergic” to education, it’s incredibly difficult for its members to enjoy a natural interest in education. But, when we share what we know and stimulate genuine curiosity, the values that support education are placed in the vanguard.
Keep Motivation Alive
When we build something, becoming part of an initiative that is bigger than ourselves, it’s possible to enjoy a new way to see things. Most of the time, people find their life purpose when they commit to the society.
In the future, we can expect to see more and more people considering that sharing what they know to the world is one of the most fundamental needs they have. Besides being a need, helping others with our knowledge can also be considered as a duty, a necessary contribution to the society.
