Clean energy is becoming more and more of a necessity. But, it's not available to everyone. California's Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill to make it possible for California's residents to purchase clean energy. Most of the state's residents were unable to make use of the copious hours of sun to power their home due to the fact that they either rent their home an therefor do not own their roofs, don't have enough of a credit rating to install the solar panel, or their roof is simp...

The biggest obstacles to world development are violations of basic human rights. According to humanrights.com, 81countries utilize abuse and torture, 54 countries have unfair trials, and 77 countries restrict the freedom of expression of their people. It is impossible for nations to successfully develop when they are being restricted by oppressive governments and regimes. These rights are garunteed to people through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. http://www.humanrig...

Humans rights and sustainable development go together very well. If someone lacks in the basic necessity of human rights, then their participation in sustainable development is lost. 40 million children below the age of 15 suffer from abuse and neglect and more than 300,000 children under the age of 18 are being exploited as child soldiers in armed conflicts worldwide. With that said, human rights is a severe worldwide issue. Human rights issues needs to be fixed so people can have...

There are over 774 million people in the world who are illiterate, 66% of them are women. For thousands of years women have been denied basic rights especially in the field of education. Although we are now closer than ever to true equality there's a lot more we could do to help. Malala Yousafazi almost paid the ultimate price for her education. She should inspire us all to push help ensure a safe and equal education for all people all around the world. This has to start by changin...

Many people are being bullied around the world because of their cultural and ethnic background. We as global citizens must grow in awareness to this reoccurring problem. We must empower our youth because they are our future. (Uni.cf/1aGmf34) "Millions of children reaching out to helplines worldwide new report revels"

In the topic of Human Rights and Sustainable Development many countries still lack the strength in their human rights meaning they still have child laborers, human trafficking, abuse towards many different kinds of people, and many more injustices. I am deeply concerned that almost all of the countries still have human trafficking; more than 1 million women and children are forced into prostitution each year. I am sad to report that a some 25 million children between ages of 5 and...
