Racism is a crazy problem that many are faced with universally. Anti-racism projects are key in having a great, flourishing society.

I saw a clip of a movie Vanilla Ice was in. It was the worst minute and thirty seconds of my life. I would do away with that film and get my 90 seconds back.

Candice G., 18
War. So many innocent people die in war and what do we have to show for it? It is sad to see how many people die for their country.

Arini M., 17
Students should be more aware of global issues, whether they be political, environmental, or technological. We can only better the world further if we
know more about it.

Megan C., 17
Unity between everyone. No matter what race, religion, colour, ethnicity, creed. No segregation; us all living in harmony together.

Aranan T., 17

Reduce tuition fees. We pay so much to further our education, when in the long run we are the ones who are going to be building the economy and helping run the world.

Carolina C. A., 18
The way people are or think. If people weren’t so selfish, this world would be a wicked place to live in.

May H., 17

Free tuition for university or college.

Zunaira S., 18
One thing that I would change about the world would be racism. Even though our world acts like there is no racism, we all know it still exists. People need to learn to be more accepting and to take people the way they are.

Dale H., 18
One thing that I would change about the world would be poverty. I think everyone deserves to get an equal chance at life. In Canada we are pretty well off compared to some people in Africa and China.

    One thing I would like to change about the world is corruption. Corruption has become so endemic today in the world, every human being is corrupt in one way or the other. Though corruption cannot be totally eradicated but it can be reduced or minimized to a large extent. I believe if everyone can decide to be upright and just in all our doings, the world would be a better one.

    1. Thanks Adedoyin. That is a huge problem, robbing hundreds of millions of their fair share of the wealth, success and dignity that could possibly be theirs in a just society. We hope we can all find a way towards a fairer, more respectful world in the coming decades.
