Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision of a world that works for everyone is the to see world in which no child is left behind in regard to the fundamental rights of children. a world with no conflicts that could lead to wars in which negotiations and common understanding is much preferred rather than confrontations.

What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
Among the most pressing problems facing the world today are man-made disasters, terrorism, preventable diseases that kill millions of children and mothers in the underdeveloped world. in every year the world loses millions of people to the preventable diseases and conflicts. terrorism is also an other pressing problem in todays’world that leads to the loss and displacements of vulnerable mothers and children in the war-torn areas of the world. natural disasters are also among the pressing issues/problems that the world is facing today which if prevented human life can be saved. Climate change is also an other important pressing problem that the world is facing today. We have witnessed how the environment is affected by the climate change.

How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
These problems could be solved by focusing more on cost- affective approaches in preventing in communicable and non-communicable diseases that cause huge loss to the human life in the world. For example, Malaria kills many children in the undeveloped world compared to the developed world. Terrorism can be defeated in collective collaborations in fighting physically and ideologically. Negations can be initiated to the end this ruthless killings of innocent human beings. Climate change can be prevented and resolved by preventing dissertations and hunting wild animals. Natural disaster and man-made disaster can also be prevented by global awareness and campaigns, advocacy, putting universal policies and regulation in place.
