Tips: Local government reports and newspapers can be great ways to identify problems. An even better way can be to go out and talk to people. Think about doing interviews or a survey to find out the issue that you think needs addressing the most.
Don’t try to do this on your own if you don't have to. Gather a team around you with different skills and think of lots of ideas before you begin. Everyone has the power to change the world. Good luck!
Geography: Geographers are interested in the relationships between people, particularly when there are some that have power over others, or an unequal share of resources. It often takes someone to stand up and open people’s eyes to a problem if things are to get better. Once a problem is identified and data is gathered, steps can be taken to solve it.
