As we find ourselves at the halfway mark towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the latest Global Sustainable Development Report serves as a sobering wake-up call. We are alarmingly off course in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and this is a matter of urgent concern for all of us at "Planning My Life."
Why We're Falling Behind
The report reveals that the situation has deteriorated since 2019, largely due to slow progress and a series of crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic and various natural disasters. These setbacks have had a devastating impact on the fight against extreme poverty, a cause that resonates deeply with our mission.
The Web of Interconnected Crises
The challenges we face are not isolated; they are intricately connected through environmental, economic, and social threads. This interconnectedness is something we've always emphasised at "Planning My Life." Our holistic approach to financial planning and personal growth aims to achieve 'enough' in every aspect of life, fulfilling your Kokoro and acknowledging that financial security is just one piece of a much larger puzzle.
The Promise of Integrated Solutions
While the interconnected nature of these crises poses challenges, it also presents opportunities for comprehensive, multi-faceted solutions. At "Planning My Life," we champion the power of non-intermediating financial planning to democratise and decentralise the industry, contributing to a more equitable society in the process.
Decentralisation and Data Ownership
In line with our commitment to decentralisation, we place the ownership and control of data and assets squarely in the hands of the end customer. This ensures that the full value of data ownership rests with you, the end-user, rather than institutions or their intermediaries. This approach is fully portable, empowering you to make your own choices without being locked into any institution's offerings.
The Imperative to Act Now
The report serves as a clarion call for governments, businesses, nonprofits, and communities worldwide. We echo this urgency. It's vital to accelerate our collective efforts to get back on track for achieving the SDGs by 2030. We are committed to doing our part by challenging the status quo and striving for transparency, integrity, and universal access in financial planning.
The "Leave no one behind" principle is at significant risk, and the time to act is now. By joining "Planning My Life," you're not just planning your future; you're contributing to a global movement aimed at creating a more equitable and sustainable world.
