Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
The world that works for everyone is deemed to be effective; since there will be no discrimination. Opportunities and judgments in creating a consistent process demand positive planning and involvement so that the dangers and consequence of disruption perpetrated by social and political disorder are handled and decreased. People engaged in doing good to others should be supported whole heartedly and encouraged in order to continue serving the mankind.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
Climate Change: Human activities like fossil fuels combustion and greenhouse effects are some reasons for climate change. The climate change can lead to melting of mountains, rise in sea level and increase in world temperature eventually making it difficult for all the living beings in the planet to survive. Findings across the world show that global climate change is happening, and strenuous scientific research illustrates that the greenhouse gases released from human actions are actually the main factor.
Political and social instability – Many countries are experiencing significant problems of trust and mutual obligations between states and citizens. This has resulted in state collapse, internal violence, regional instability and military conflicts. The possibility that a nation will be affected from different types of political instability springs up dramatically when economic process is slow-moving.
War and Terrorism – Over the years, different types of wars like civil wars, cold wars, identity wars have been ruining human civilization. People still live in terror in most of the Islamic countries where freedom have been totally ditched.
Unequal distribution of financial resources – Severe income disparity is amongst the most worrying issues in today’s time. The disproportionate distribution of income affects the whole economy of a nation. Similarly, the financial crisis has led in disparities in developed as well as developing nations. Probably one of the most dramatic illustrations of the unequal distribution of resources in the world is the presence of continuous starvation in many African nations.
Drug abuse – A large number of youths are prone to drug abuse. Peer pressure, family issues or an urge to experience a thrill are few of the reasons for the increase of this bad habit. People don’t realize why or how many youths develop an addiction to drugs. It is usually believed that drug addicts don’t have any ethical standards or self-control. The truth is, drug addiction is actually a frustrating disease, and giving it up can take much more than good motives or even an intense willpower.
Refugee problems- Across the world, 19.5 million people have already been compelled to look for refuge away from home. It is the responsibility of the governing bodies to support them. However, most of the prosperous nations continue to treat refugees as somebody else’s concern. spread of infectious diseases.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
These problems are manmade and should be solved through them. People across the world should be sensitized on these issues that affect them by organizing programs and policy makers should assist in implementing this.
