Greetings, I am Hayagrish, a student of Lalaji Memorial Omega International School in Chennai, India and I would like to share my views on the importance of being a global citizen in this multicultural world. Every problem in the world, every global conflict whether it takes place hundreds of thousands of miles away, or right next door, is a global one.

Over the years there has been a rapid increase in global temperatures, excessive rainfall and high level of evaporation all around the world. All this occurs as a result of climate change through the global warming phenomenon.

It was signed by 186 countries in 200...

Nowadays the demand for food in a growing world population is the most challenging of all food issues. The impacts of food to the global environment are imperative drivers for changes. The demand which is not managed well will bring about the greatest squandering of human and natural resources. According to an FAO-commissioned study (2011), one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year - approximately 1.3 billion tons - gets lost or wasted. The amount is equivalen...
