Ideas

We encourage teams to explore issues that affect their own lives, or those they feel passionate about. A Global Issue can be one that affects the world or a particular area or population. The presentation format will ask you to explore your own role and/or the role of your country in creating, enabling or continuing the issue. It will also ask you to consider how you might implement a proposed solution, in partnership with those affected.

Here is a list of random issues to explore as possible topics to get your ideas flowing. Your topic selection is NOT limited though. You are free to choose additional issues of importance to you and others around the world.
