    I think it is important to speak to other people around the world on global issues because :
    1. You get to know more about the issue. because you get to know their opinions and learn from it to gain more knowledge about the issue.
    2. Also you get to know good measures taken to solve the problems so that if you encounter similar problems you can know the best strategy to solve it.

    Before I start the question says,'' why is it important speak to people around the world about global issues'' which means it is global problem which affecting all of us and is not leaving anyone out. And if we don't speak others about it is going to affect us gradually. So it is very important to speak to others and get counselling, but our heads together and fight it together

    Speaking with other people is one of the best way to tell them something and share their ideas , and from all around the world of course people do not all think the same way...
    But in some situations , like when you are speaking about global issues , listening to people opinion and contributions is quite helpful ... even by learning new ways to participate at slowing global warming or encouraging people to do their best !
    That's why we Should speak with people from all around the world , and that's what " Burnet News Club" is doing perfectly , people are posting things , commenting and telling what they think , Different viewpoints of many subjects are shared , people are replying to each other and having debates about Climate change and THAT is making changes on the world , special thanks to all members of this company .

    Drawing has always been the language of feelings and emotions and something that we express in ourselves silently, creatively and in any way.
    And because it is the language of the interior, it explains its content to all people, regardless of their cultures and the language they speak.
    For example, we find that a painting of a person from China whose content is understood by a person from Mexico.
    Before letters and words were invented from eternity, drawings were the ones that talk about the civilizations of the first people, so we find the drawings of warriors and the way of life on the walls and in the caves in which the first man lived. Far and near.
    How many people who do not speak, but who are proficient in drawing, we find drawing with his brush and art about what he wants to talk about
    How many paintings exhibiting houses included paintings that brought together multiple races and from different countries. These paintings were the language of communication between them. They spoke to them all, and in one language that is the language of art.
    For example, we find that children often draw and show adults their drawings, talking about what they were unable to express in their tongues.

    It's important to speak to other people from around the world about global issues because the problem is global and not personal, and the mistake made by a person affects the world and the damage is on everyone.

    Our society is transforming rapidly, and in this growing and changing era, there is an urgent need to include global awareness issues in formal and informal training. The modern generation is facing many issues related to social diversity and this requires them to focus more on understanding the cross cultures.

    Social global awareness is conceptual learning that helps an individual to gain pertinent knowledge about cultural, political, ethical, economic, social, and environmental issues revolving around the world.

    The modern young generation will move and work in diverse social settings. Enhancing the sense of responsibility through education among the modern generation is vitally important in this era. Without this, society will be dismembered because of the differences in opinion, priorities, and social structures. The ultimate victims will be none other than the youth in terms of depression, discontentment, and self-centeredness.

    It is important to speak to other people around the world about global issues because it helps people from around the world know more about an issue eg. Global warming and collaborate to find a possible solution together. A solution can be found through ideas shared by many people around the world as the Burnet News Club is doing.

    Growing up in a sheltered community, I was never truly exposed to global issues as a child. Topics such as politics and international relations were not often touched at my dinner table either.
    But I began to navigate my public school career, I realize that I was not alone in my situation. There were so many kids just like me who were not exposed to global events. May be less than 5% of the entire class could talk about climate matters.
    Although I grew up in this "bubble" of indifference toward the global community, I am slowly becoming a more global student. For me , here are the top reasons why I should speak to other people from around the world about global issues.
    * Globalization is on the rise. In this day and age, one country can not survive without another, and this simple principle affects everyone on the globe. It is likely that one day, you will become friends with someone who speaks an entirely different language or grew up in an entirely different culture. These people may even be your future coworkers. If you want to be able to foster dipper connections and broaden your network, understanding global issues an other cultures is key.
    * Global issues are your issues too. Let's talk about the situation of adolescent girls in Guatemala. Did you known that more than 2 million girls in Guatemala do not attend school due to social boundaries? If u believe in gender equality. Dare to expand your horizons by learning about the issues you believe in fighting for an entirely different country.
    * While one country can not survive without another, one person cannot survive without another either. Giving back or volunteering in your community can give you invaluable experiences. But if you extend your service to the entire world, there is no telling what amazing differences you will be able to make. Understanding global issues and further using your talents to help solve these issues will not only make you sensible and well rounded person; it will help the world take one step closer towards a brighter future.

      Yes. I am so much more enlightened now from speaking to others around the world. I am actually beginning to think of how to make my own little impact in addressing global issues.

    " Why is it important to speak to other people from around the world about global issues? "
    Because when you talk to multiple people , you can get to know more issues around the world and also you will have different ideas and opinions , and you will get more important information that you have not heard before , so it is good for everyone to share your thoughts and opinions to get the pest.

    Communication with others is very important for a certain understanding.
    It is important to talk to others about global issues because they concern everyone and affect them in one way or another.
    Through talking with others, we get to know different cultures from different countries and learn about how those countries exchange these issues through their individuals who communicate with us.
    This is in addition to understanding the extent of awareness and concern of others for this issue or other, and at the same time it spreads awareness and increases the sense of global problems, which helps to suggest different solutions to them, develops the thought and generates new and creative ideas that may help officials in solving them.
    Talking with others motivates us to search and see the latest developments on this or that issue. You will find people searching and seeing the latest news and listening to the opinions of experts.
    Finally, talking to others about global issues brings us closer to each other and gives us new skills and abilities.

    Climate change is a global problem. We must solve it all together, without excluding anyone. The opinions are different, the solutions too. Imagine a world with one and same thought. It would be very boring, and it would not help us to win the ecological war, because to win a battle, you need several soldiers, and especially several tactics. Talking with strangers also helps build friendships. Humanity would then be united, and brotherhood is necessary to form a solid block. Together we can conquer it all. Solidarity is the key to success ans mec a better world!

    Globalization is about the interconnectedness of people across the world that eventually leads to global cultural, political and economic integration. An ability to understand, respect and work well with people from diverse cultures is increasingly important for social and academic success in an interconnected world. The idea behind global awareness is to create global citizens who are open to those raised in different countries, cultures and religious settings.
    The importance of speaking to people are
    1. It is an opportunity to make new friends for example, the Burnet hub is a big opportunity to make and cope with other people you've not seen before.
    2 It helps in knowing more about other people cultures from diferent perspectives: For example in Ghana here our ways of doing things is different from other people's ways of doing things, so through Global communication we get to know more from other people
    Our biggest issue in the world now is climate change, we get to know how climate change affect other countries through globalization. So I think it's necessary to speak to people globally

    5- In your opinion, why is it important to talk to other people from all over the world about global issues?

    1- Because they may have the same problem as him, we can together come up with a solution to this problem.

    2- They may be able to produce ideas that might solve this problem, which we cannot think of a solution to, so we cooperate together and solve it all.
