Issues and Solutions Our actions can lead to positive change. Issues, problems, issues! There are big and little issues and problems that concern a lot of people. Some problems and issues have obvious solutions while some issues and problems seem to have no solution. In your Exhibition process you will get a chance to apply your skills as an action taker to some of these issues and problems. You will be choosing a real problem(either local or global) and carefully working through to a solution and take some action to help this issue or problem. Working through this Exhibition journal will help you organize your time and resources to discover the best solution to your chosen issue or problem. Good luck!
