Maybe one thing we all have in common is that we are affected by global change. One example is the alarming change in climate. It could be sunny now and be rainy later. There is also the advancement of technology. Allowing us to maximize the use of a gadget, for example cellular phones. Before, it is used just for sending messages and calling. Now aside from communication we can capture moments and instantly share it through social media through the access of the internet, we could also listen to our favorite music and play the latest hits.
As much as we are affected by these changes we also brought these changes upon us, we may not be aware of it but directly or indirectly our activities is the reason why these changes occur. As consumers and part of the growing population we have different wants and with that we demand goods. That’s why different innovations of products also arise. Cheaper and high quality products are what we want that’s why companies strive to improve the lines of their product. Another example is our ‘want’ to spend leisure time that’s why more malls and recreational parks are built everywhere. More lands are used for commercial purposes rather than agricultural. Summing these up, I think it largely affects our culture, from traditional ways to more modern and western way of living.
