Most of us, if pressed to do so, could put together at least a short list of “world problems” … problems that, if “solved”, would presumably create a better world for most of the world’s population. We might, for example, list hunger, poverty, and war as “problems” that should be addressed. But how many of us have REALLY given the matter that much thought? How many of us have made a serious attempt to list “all” of the problems? How many of us have given any thought to what it might take to truly “solve” any of these problems? How many of us have “prioritized” the list … to identify which should be at the top of the list and which at the bottom?
Join us as we “make a game of it”. Join us as we put together a list, discuss the relative benefits of “solving” each of the items, discuss how difficult it might be to “solve” each of the items on the list, and “prioritize” our list. We won’t, of course, actually “solve” any of the world’s problems during the course of our discussion, but we’ll at least gain a greater appreciation for the issues involved.
