20 Global Issues and 20 Years


This wiki is dedicated to raise awareness in students on global issues that affect them now and into the future.
It uses as a starting point J. F. Rischard's 2002 book, High Noon: 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them

As a starting point Grade 7 students from Qatar Academy in Doha will work in teams to add content for each issue.
In the future students will add, clarify, update and extend to reflect a growing understanding that builds on prior knowledge.
It is hoped that action will arise from such understanding and that we can report on this here and on our Ning.

Students from other schools are most welcome to contribute and collaborate.
