Major Community Problems - made by students of Inova

Presented on the 2nd meeting of the multilateral school partnership Our TRESAURES in Portugal (Feb, 2011)

MAJOR COMMUNITY PROBLEMS – Our work on the Project and its themes began with understanding our community. Unfortunately, every community has its problems and talking about major community problems nowadays is inevitable. Nevertheless, learning about community, its challenges and opportunities eventually leads to a better society. Therefore, as involved and active citizens and students, we conducted some research on what burdens our own community the most revealing crime, violence, anti-social behavior, poverty, racism/discrimination and unemployment as our community's major problems. However, even though all the problems may seem numerous and complex, we think that the solution lies within proper education. In other words, learning about democracy, non-violent behavior, communication, human rights, diversity and accepting differences teach us all to be responsible citizens who understand the community and treat it respectfully.
