    • 4. EDUCATION Education is one of the major issues that countries around the world are facing today. In this picture one can see a student with a laptop sitting next to a stack of books. His hand is on his chin which signifies he is intently listening to his structure. In the background one can see pieces of what seems to be a lab bench. The school Science Leadership Academy seems to be taking a global approach to teaching their students. Students not only have the luxury of of highly qualified instructors but have access to to text and online resources. Students are provided with laptops so they always have the chance to stay connected with the rest of the world. Although this picture of education is luxurious many young people around the world do not have the same opportunities as this young man. Education in a global sense allows for individuals to compete in not only a global economy but a global culture. Education is a right that every individual should have. Without education one can not successfully make it in this global society and because of that will be at a large disadvantage. Educational settings teach people not only important facts about their world but it is a place where individuals learn to become socialized and and productive members of society. Education not only prepares people for the world around them but to instill in them the values of independence, inquiry, and strength. Societies that do not have a sustainable education system are not only failing their young people but taking away one of the most important human rights there is.

    • 6. DEVELOPMENT This work on city construction is just a small piece of a larger picture The city of Philadelphia is attempting to implement many projects in order to create more development. Some of these developments include roads, infrastructure, housing, and many other programs that will build the city up. In such a large metropolitan area such as Philadelphia it is harder to do things in one large sweep. Although development may seem like a slow and draining process steps are being taken to better the city. Hopefully the city will start seeing less “caution”, and “road work ahead” signs and more people working these parts of the city into their everyday lives. Development in countries allow for communities allows for all people to take an equal advantage of the resources at hand. Developments such as housing allow for those who are impoverished to live in healthy living situations. Development of roads and infrastructure not only makes the road safer but gives people jobs. Developments plays an important roles in all countries around the world.

    • 8. With the growing population of the world the environment has become of the most important issues. Sustaining the environment is an issue that is not only important but a pressing one. Trying to come up with techniques and strategies to implement has been one of the hardest things for communities around the world to accomplish. In a larger sense the world is conscious of the pressing issue but seems to be confused as to how to deal with it. ENVIRONMENT Environment seems to be one of the biggest issues on peoples minds these days. Environmental awareness ranges from recycling, to solar panelling to biodiesel fuel. As a a country and in a larger sense the world we waste much. As soon as one acquires something we are tossing it away within the next couple of months. In a city such a Philadelphia where the trash piles are high and the care for the environment is low we run into major problems. Due to the intense waste Philadelphia produces the city is attempting to to put programs in place that will help individuals and families be become more environmentally friendly. One of the most easiest ways to be environmentally friendly in the city of Philadelphia and its surrounding areas is to recycle.

    • 11. GENDER Gender has always played an interesting role in many societies across the globe. The two pictures above show the same young woman expressing herself in two distinctly different ways. On the left we have a rather androgynous picture and to the right we have a more traditional gender expression. For centuries women have been written off as the inferior sex and have been forced into subservience. In the city of Philadelphia gender expression among young people is running ramped. We have young women who are dressing more masculine and men dressing more feminine In a lot of Eastern cultures there is a third sex, this third sex is considered to fall somewhere between man and woman and in the city of Philadelphia and in the United States many young people are catching on.

    • 14. HEALTH Health, wellness, and healthcare are major facts of individuals lives all over the globe. The United States has been subjected to great scrutiny due to their system of healthcare that constantly fluctuates. Another reason why this scrutiny comes into play is because with past healthcare bills many of the working class and poverty stricken individuals in this country could not afford healthcare. Some countries such as Canada don’t see healthcare as an aspect of life that is just for the rich, but an aspect that is for everyone. In the Western world for the most part we are lucky to have systems in place that keep us well and healthy. Many countries in Sub-Sahara Africa don’t have any systems and because of this their populations are faced with many pernicious diseases and ailments. This photograph of a prescription was filled at a local grocery store. This picture represents just how accessible healthcare is in our country.

    • 16. HUMAN RIGHTS These young people are taking a stand. They are marching in solidarity with other young people. They are marching for the Jena 6. The Jena six was a group of young men down in Louisiana who were severely charged with beating one of their classmates who was white. Many evens transpired between black and white youth in this community and because of it the tension ran high. Youth form Philadelphia took a stand to speak up and out about the injustices these young men faced. All around the world human rights remains to be a large issue. Human rights has been an issue that has been going on for years. So old that before it was deemed human rights it was plaguing societies. Because human rights are entitled to all humans people feel as though they should constantly reinforced. The issue with human rights is that there is really no collective agreement about what a human right actually is. Many people fill passionately about human rights and feel the ned and desire to “stand up for what is right”. The picture above is a prime example of human rights.

    • 18. Society and culture are the essence of a person’s experience on this planet. Societies are models for which people build community, tradition, and lifestyles The ever evolving cultures that derive from society is astonishing. In the picture above one can see how a culture and a society have intermingled with one another. The diversity that this picture depicts shows that a part of the Philadelphia culture is a strong sense of community and accepting others. Many years ago this picture would not have even existed due to the culture of American society. SOCIETY & CULTURE This picture is the true essence of the society and culture of Philadelphia. The culture of Philadelphia is truly founded in diversity and the celebration of many cultures. In this picture we have two Black Americans, an Asian, a woman, and a white person. These young men met this woman on the street and took a picture with her. She was a total stranger and yet they seem like they have known one another for years. The backdrop of this scene is in one of the cities one most popular parts, ChinaTown. Philadelphia is one of those cities that truly tries to incorporate all pieces of the world.

    • 20. TRADE Delicious, juicy, and moist! I’ve been eating these grapes for years not knowing where they came from or how they reached my kitchen table. All I know about these grapes is that I love them. These grapes come from the depths of Chile. Picked from vines and placed in buckets by hands that have worked hard. I eat these grapes with such ease and blithe feelings. Global trade around the world is one of the most beneficial aspects of Globalization. Many countries rely on trade as one of the sole providers for their economy. A country such as China which not only produces but trades with their neighboring countries has much to offer. Although trade is a beneficial aspect of Globalization the global market at times seems to be dominated by the same power holders, and because of this individuals who rank lower on the trade tower are exploited.
