Solve a Problem

As you are aware, there are a lot of problems in the world today (politcal, climate, war, religious persecution, etc.) You, as the next generation that will be leading our world in a few short years, have a lot of great ideas and a different perspective than our leaders today do.

Your task is to create a Prezi:
1) Choose a problem or issue that exists in the world today.
2) Identify the problem, and try to research the history of the problem or issue (eg. causes, root of problem, how long has this problem existed, etc).
3) Solve the problem! – What do you think could be done to solve this problem? What suggestions do you have that could bring an end to this problem?

Embed the Prezi in your blog. Include a brief summary of what your readers will see in your prezi. Explain why you chose the problem you did.
