  1. Cyber-security: terror recruitment online

The topic is meant to deal with the security challenges that are caused by the use of online recruitment of ‘lone wolf’ attackers and terror organisations activists, in light of growing numbers of attacks worldwide. In this manner were trained and taught to act the attackers of the Boston Marathon, the Brussels airport, and many other attacks through 2015-2017

  1. Immediate threatening trends of Global Warming

The topic is addressing the already occurring challenges of Global Warming: flooding of villages in coastal areas, uninhabitable islands that were deserted, rising of temperature near the equator, the growing difficulty in supporting agriculture in Africa, etc. Many of the global warming damages are already occurring, and global action to implement the conclusions of the Paris Accords is required.

  1. The Abolishment of Child-marriage

The freedoms of children are being trampled in various places around the world through the horrific practice of Child-Marriage. In many cases, children rights are being ignored and their childhood and chance for development are at risk. 1 in 3 girls in the developing world is said to be married before the age of 18, (more than 700 Million women alive today) and the numbers are expected to hit the 1.2 billion by 2050 unless the practice is abolished.

  1. Children right to education: from a promise to practice

The Universal Declaration of human rights, Art. 26(2) promised education and the promotion of tolerance. The Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) Art. 24(e), 28, 29 promised access to education to all children. These promises are empty in the face of wanting and lacking implementation in many countries around the world.

  1. Famine crisis in South Sudan

In 2014 a civil war broke in S. Sudan, which caused hundreds of thousands to flee the country. It hit in the same time food became scarce, and children and adults alike are dying of starvation. Somalia, Nigeria, and Yemen are also suffering, and 30 million people are in immediate danger of the conflicts and food shortages in these areas.

  1. Combating Ocean Pollution

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, “Transforming our world”, surfaced the importance of acting against pollution of the ocean, overfishing, and other environmental-destructing activities. The acceptance of MARPOL and UNCLOS are serving as a start to the general range of actions that should limit the pollution, but it isn’t sufficient to attend the existing damages.
