EU TECH CHAMBER SDG AWARDS-2021
FLORIAN FRHR. VON TUCHER, Chairman of the EU Tech Chamber
As I made clear in my editorial, whether we like it or not, since 24th February 2022, we are living in a new world, darkened by a revival of all the worst aspects of the past. It seems incredible to think that in the 21st century, we should find ourselves reliving the barbarism of the 20th century. But every day we are forced to witness scenes that could be taken from a 1940s newsreel: the reckless bombardment of homes and hospitals – even nuclear power stations – resulting in lines of fleeing citizens – women and children, the elderly, the wounded. Trains crammed with desperate refugees leave for the safety of the border, while thousands of young men fight vicious battles on all fronts with countless casualties.
