Bearing in mind our Plan of Action, we can still have some insights on what is written. It is important to think on what we have to do and...

Do you use your eyes wisely? – There is a large variety of perspectives, which one of them is yours? People, especially nation leaders, could answer this question immediately; carefully evaluating its connotation, they could express their answers to such impressive and inspiring words. I am amazed how they could draw directly to their very points towards the so- called “awareness” as their expected answers. Although there are billions of global citizens and leaders who are in...

Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to har...

Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineralnutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, biochar,mineral wool, expanded clay pebbles or coconut husk. Researchers discovered in the 18th century that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. In natural conditions, soil acts as...

To achieve the goal for Subtheme E, “Education for All”, we should not focus just on specific areas to put this objective into action. This should encompass a worldwide scale. It is important to note that yes, people in certain areas have it worse than others. However, as mentioned earlier, we shouldn’t limit it to just those areas. Additionally, we should direct our aims in not what the government can do to make a change, but what the people can do. The government can do one...

We all figure out ways in which we can communicate with others, even if language is what separates us. In the end, we all figure out how to climb over that wall that divides us, which leads into the fact that there are no borders that separates us.

Five different places, from the United Nations in New York, India, Burnaby School District, Mexico, and Philipp...
