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 issues to explore as possible topics for your pitch. Your topic selection is NOT limited though; you are free to choose additional issues of importance to you and others around the world.
