Option 1:
How can we protect our natural resources and the rights of the world’s citizens to live equitably?

Option 2:
How do we build a more environmentally just world?

Example questions: 

To answer either question, identify what needs fixing and show us how you or someone you know is making or can make a positive impact. Then reveal how others can follow your lead.
