Some problems are not easy to be solved and can’t be hidden among mankind, as many of those problems transcend the national boundaries of the different countries that have them.
For solving these kinds of problems, there have appeared different organizations and different forums that are trying to ease the situations in the less developed countries from all around the world, where these problems were identified.
Here are some of the global society issues and their meaning, just to see a little in the depth of these problems.
Some countries or some regions of this planet are in a dire need of aid, depending on their situation. There are different forms of aid, from a long-term development aid to humanitarian emergency assistance. Some of the organizations provide them with military assistance or food aid, medical assistance or basic schooling. However, not all the areas can be covered, and sometimes there is a delay in helping them due to the political agendas, inefficiency of delivery and so on.
Causes of Poverty
As many of you know, the poverty is a serious problem in different place all around us. You will see the countries from the third world, where they lack even the drinking water or simple basic food, but you will also see developed countries which tend to split their population in two – those who have more than enough and those who have nothing to sustain themselves. There are more than 3 billion people – about half of the population of the Earth – who lives with less than $2.5 per day. Due to this reason, less and less children receive a basic education – they don’t know how to read or write.
Even if we live in the 21st century, racism has not disappeared entirely. Racism is that belief that says that some people from different racial groups are superior to others, no matter their educational background or the fact that they prove to be qualified for one job or another. As far as things go, racism is hand in hand with discrimination, and these represented powerful and efficient weapons to encourage hatred or fear of others, in a time of war and conflict.
There are still countries in this world who still believe that the woman is made only to take care of the house and the children. They don’t have access to education and sometimes not even to medical care. In some places, women are not allowed to work to sustain themselves or their family, they can’t be alone on streets and in some Islamic or Muslim places, and they need to be covered from head to toe in special clothing to not show off their body. Gender discrimination is spread more widely than anyone can think or comprehend.
This can be a large subject and it can surely touch different areas. The truth is that we take less and less care of the planet that we live on. Because of our lack of concern, this can easily turn against us. Our waters are polluted, our air is full of toxic elements and the soil can’t sustain any more of the debris that we deliver at it. There are many things that we should do, but there are even more things that we should not to. If we continue to pollute the nature that surrounds us, we will be facing extinction for different species pf plants, microorganism and animals – as all of this is known as the biodiversity.
There are many more things that can be filed under global society issues, but the power to make a difference and change the world is in all of us. Just consider that a better and cleaner world would be better for us than no world at all.
