The goal of the World Citizen Essay Contest is to promote discussion among students, teachers, families, and community members about the ways that individuals can effect positive change in the global community.
According to the World Health Organization, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year between 2030 and 2050 due to increased malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea, and heat stress. Climate change can also have a negative impact on global health due to lack of clean air, safe drinking water, adequate food, and secure housing. If you had the opportunity to address the impact of climate change on global health, WHERE would you go, WHAT issue or concern would you try to solve and WHY, and WHAT steps would you take to bring about a sustainable solution?
