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...

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. The combining or communication between different cultures enables us to create new ideas, which leads us to where we are now. Five different places, from the United Nations in New York, India, Burnaby School District, Mexico, and Philipp...

Voices of Youth is a space for youth to read and see about specific issues, as well as provide their opinion or address issues throughout the world to the public. Every day we see an issue that really affects us within our own community. However, someone somewhere else doesn’t see the same thing, as they are seeing something else. This is the point of the Voices of Youth, for us to connect and share problems throughout the world.
