    Please choose an issue that the world is currently facing (if you cannot come up with an issue, there is a list provided that you can choose from, but it is not required to do a listed issue).

    • When and how it started
    • Who the issue is affecting and how it’s affecting those involved
    • Why it is an issue/problem and what is happening because of it
    • 2-3 possible solutions explained (what is a potential solution- how would the solution work, what would it take in order to make it work, why is it a good option?)
