What is CARRE4?
Redefinition: “to give new meaning to”
What does it mean to live, interact, and survive in the human world? What does it mean to be human? Well, that’s something we can never really put a clear definition on. Why? Because what it means to be human is always changing. Thinking, innovation, laws that govern the land, and much more challenge how we live everyday. If you’re older than 15 years of age and you’re reading this, you’ve likely had at least 5 major innovative events in your lifetime that have changed your thinking, approach, and navigation of the world.
Let’s take me for example. Say I’m 17 years old.
2003: Human Genome Project
2008: Obama, America’s first black president
2012: Snapchat; Marijuana is legalized in Washington and Colorado
2013: Shared Economy — Uber and Airbnb
2015: 2/3 of Americans own Smartphones
2018: Facial Recognition Technology
2019: 5G standard is released
2020: COVID-19; Amazon taking over the world
And that’s not even the beginning of it!
When we’re thinking about what redefines humanity, what first comes to mind? Tech? Science? Innovation? Sure. But it’s not at all limited to those things. In fact, humanity can’t be redefined if everything that redefines it is well…already defined!
Deriving from the french word Carrefour, meaning: Intersection, CARRE4 is a space where interdisciplinary and forward thinking approach is welcome.
If you want to read about ideas, people, or phenomenons that are going to redefine the ways we interact, socialize, and live with the environment, people, and things around us — follow CARRE4.
Here, all topics from culture, to society, politics, literature, science, technology will be explored in the scope of humanity.
Some questions reading CARRE4 may answer
- How will [blank] change the way I live?
- How will [blank] change the way society functions?
- How will [blank] affect [blank]?
- What is [blank] and why is it important to pay attention?
- What does redefinition mean in terms of [blank]?
It’s pretty much that simple. Anything that is affected is changed, and therefore is redefined.
