Create an inclusive society
What is an inclusive society? As defined by the United Nations, an inclusive society is a society that over-rides differences of race, gender, class, generation, and geography, and ensures inclusion, equality of opportunity as well as capability of all members of the society to determine an agreed set of social institutions.
