Every year, throughout the human history, there have been a lot of unpredictable disasters. Famine and disease prevailed across the world while wars constantly threatened the human life. These days, unfortunately, such circumstances still remains the same. In fact, it's becoming worse and much more complicated. Nowadays, we are confronting various disasters from numerous factors such as environmental crisis, nuclear weapon threats, super bacteria threats, increasing refugees, gender equality, education equality, the huge gap between the rich and the poor, and etc. Thus, we have to change the way we solve such a miserable situations. Previously, our solutions mostly focused on 'aids'. It surely was a good act for the world. However, it's no longer enough to solve the complicated problems we encounter nowadays. Based on this notion, I strongly believe the key to solve this issue is the creative solution from using ‘human creativity'. To highlight in one sentence, "Use your creativity to help", quoted from the phrase you can find in the Bill Gates Foundation's Museum.
