      That’s interesting…
      Well, I would wish for:

      1. World without borders
      2. Absence of cruelty towards all living things (animals, and humans alike)
      3. Ability to travel through space without needing a spacesuit
      4. Contact with a friendly alien species
      5. Meeting god (if they exist)

      What about you?

      1. All plastic in the water to be good.
      2. All people to be better.
      3. All money to be gone (that relates to the second wish so when we don’t have money we will still not be cruel and eager to get more stuff…)
      4. To find another planet with life or that sustains life (and maybe travel to there)
      5. Have time to do what I want (that last one is for my self a bit and the people around me 😉 )

      1. That the world revolved more around leisure, downtime and happiness and less around work (more time off to have downtime and spend time with loved ones- I think this pandemic has really shown how crazily face paced the world is!)
      2. That all illnesses (mental and physical) had a working treatment/cure (this can be helped by lots of funding for researchers to develop these treatments!)
      3. That we had multiple lives – once this one ends you get to experience being a new person with a new culture in a new country etc. (You would get to experience every corner of life and people would certainly be more empathetic and understanding with all of this experience!)
      4. That everyone was nice to one another and bullying/hurting/negative comments didn’t exist anymore (Everyone can play their part at this!)
      5. That everyone in the world was safe and happy with a roof over their heads and loved ones to share life with 🙂

      Five is a whole lot of wishes and a whole lot of responsibility! I think I would go for the big ones: world peace, an end to hunger, a vaccine for this wretched virus, equality for everyone, and a complete switch to renewable energy!
