We have witnessed how the internet and social media have tremendously increased and fundamentally changed the connections among people,  nations and cultures. In similar ways, wider access to high performance computing can have a democratizing effect on improving the general quality of life. This is because it can play a key role in fulfilling humanity's needs, ranging from the basics, such as food, water, shelter and health, to hardship reduction, care for the earth, commerce and entertainment as well as answering some of life’s most profound questions. Next, we need a dedicated effort to communicate key benefits in a common language so they can be appreciated by global society.
