    This is important to involve education and health communities, e.g. pilots in schools, workshops with health practitioners.

    Keeping safe and in good condition is basically an understanding of a "resilient healthy bring-up". You cannot have a healthy neighborhood or a home if you do not teach children how to be healthy from their start in school and at home from birth. Cleanliness does not come by itself, it is taught at home. It is part of the educational heritage in parenthood.

    These are the basic elements that our modern world lacks today. We live in a world where 70% of the people do not care or know how to raise kids and the results are an inconsistently dramatic increase of slums due to illiteracy and abandonment of women´s tasks of becoming mothers.

    The other factor affecting these challenges of the future of the world have to do with governments that do not do sufficiently enough to care for family coherence in almost all countries & if in all.

    One hundred years ago there were very small slum areas and diseases were accountable due to little knowledge of medical treatments or research, but today we have the means, equipment & technology to develop cures and increase health standards.

    Today, as a population grows and economic pressures arise in small countries & developed nations, due to slow development in family care does not provide a full account to keep women at home and men at work, so children are abandoned during childhood and do not learn the basics for a strong parenthood & a healthy life. Due to standard wages, women have to work and do not care their kids who grow under the supervision of third parties who are not even qualified to take care of children.

    We have to create institutions to become transitions in bring-up process of education & learning of the basics or the way the world is running now only 5 to 10% will be fit for living in the next century while the rest will not have an opportunity for a prosperous healthy life. This, in fact, will be a challenge for WHO due to the increase of new discourse of ailments, contagious spread of disease, and chronic ailments produced by unhealthy conditions, pollution, and artificial spray products that damage water, sea, and air.

    The way the weather and environment are changing while these changes occur, diseases will also have a turn of direction and strength.

    The solution is in the house, at home.
