1. Transformation of Individuals and Generations

The product, service, system, enterprise, R&D or technology, which produced or developed, is first of all for the transformation of society. Firstly, it is aimed to transform and benefit the majority of the society massively. The transformation of humans and generations is expected later. The effect should start with the relevant masses of the society, not the individual. As the masses transform, individual transformation begins. Each in itself provides new masses and then the completion of social transformation.

Society 5.0 is understood as a process that all societies or the young population in a society or the majority of societies must go through. So, it is considered as if everyone is expected to be a part of smart society systems. Society 5.0 is an intellectual philosophy and the future welfare choice of societies. The scope is just human values.

Society 1.0 started with hunting. Society 2.0 discovered agriculture. Society 3.0 produced the industry with the development of productivity and with the ability to produce. Society 4.0 is equipped the all system with knowledge and with coming the entrepreneurial spirit to the forefront. And finally, society 5.0 is being good people, being sensitive to the environment, the animal and other people, using the world's resources efficiently, using innovation and entrepreneurship for the benefit of all humanity, the absence of poverty, healthier life and quality education, that is, the transition is only the science of time, not for only its own society, but for all the world communities. In societies, every person should make a decision and make a choice within this science of time, in terms of their own talents, intellectual skills, future goals, and their willingness to add to themselves or to society.

Today, we are still fishing, consuming white and red meat, planting crops, eating fruits and vegetables, improving our living areas with industry, making people and systems smarter with data, more importantly, with all these, Society 5.0 strategies that aim to be a sensitive society and individuals to the environment, animals and other people, i.e. the world, are actually the current flow of our lives. For example, a software developer who lives in a metropolis and works in a corporate enterprise in an organized industrial zone develops the projects on smart systems in the field of renewable energy resources. On weekends, he goes to the chalet by a three-hour road from his place of residence. He uses renewable energy sources there and produces organic products with smart farming projects in his small garden. At the same time, he catches fish from the stream close to the chalet and consumes the fish he caught and the vegetables he grew on weekends. In short, individuals or societies are already realizing society 1.0 or society 5.0 strategies within a week with their life choices. To reside individuals, who live in the agriculture and livestock society in their village, in the metropolis for university education and to work in corporate business in the metropolis after university education, to live their social life in smart societies and to return to their village after retirement and the preference of continuing their lives with agriculture and livestock is defined as the transformation of generations to society 5.0. At the same time, retirement goals of the new generation in corporate businesses are rapidly decreasing. In fact, the number of people who want to work in corporate businesses is rapidly decreasing and the field of entrepreneurship is growing rapidly.

The digital individuals of the new generation, that is, those born with digital technology, are actually more sensitive to themselves and their communities. It is not possible to value the intellectual capital of each individual and turn it into a vision in corporate structures. The value of intellectual capital among the short, medium and long term strategies of the corporate business decreases and disappears. For this reason, new generations believe that each individual's own innovation and entrepreneurship feature is valuable. The new smart generation defends that individuals should focus on their own initiatives and contributes more to societies and world citizenship.
