Global Issues and Sustainable Solutions

Have you ever thought about how a teenager in Vietnam could be linked the jeans you’re wearing right now? Or how far the water and grounds in your coffee traveled before it reached your mug? The world is connected in countless ways, and global issues are no different. Poverty, climate change, population, energy—they’re all major global concerns that are connected in some way. The good news is that because none of these issues exist in a vacuum, they all have interconnected solutions that we can develop to craft long-lasting change. By thinking about global solutions to global issues, we will create a truly sustainable world.
