I don’t watch the news often so I have very little knowledge on what’s going on around the world. I have to make a presentation about one global issue (going on right now or as of recently) and I literally don’t know what to choose... Does anyone have any idea? Any news on what’s going on globally?

In my opinion, the biggest global issue happening currently as we speak is the immigration and refugees crisis. It's a very diverse topic and can be approached from multiple angles striking different chords.

I would pay attention to the news and pick something that draws your interest. Good luck! :hug:

Right, I was thinking about that too but I need to cite sources and news articles related to the refugee crisis that happened recently. Do you know of anything?

It's difficult to find objective sources these days because every news outlet approaches this topic according to its own political agenda but i'd start searching articles from The Associated Press, Wall Street Journal and Reuters. Good luck!

Thanks for the ideas, but I need specific events that happened. For example like the Amazon fire. I can't do it since someone already took it though. :wailing:

My bad. I read it as an issue and not an event.

I'd pick something out of your local paper that interests you and do that. If it happened on the planet, it is a global event. :smug:

There aren't many truly global events or issues. I'd find out what your teacher is into and do something with a slant that favors their view. Nothing like an easy A........
