Remember, a world problem is something that affects more than one continent and can be prevented. Natural disasters cannot be prevented but lack of disaster preparedness can be prevented. In the interest of diversity, some of these are not necessarily World Problems yet it is good to let the students choose something they are really interested in. All of these world problems can be grouped into one of five categories: - Environment - Health - Violence - Poverty - Education Some can even fit into more than one.
