• WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FACING YOUTH TODAY? “Perhaps the biggest problem facing youth today is the ever-looming energy crisis. After generations of neglect, the problems that face us are at their most critical levels. The youth today must use forward thinking to provide the world with creative solutions for clean, renewable energy. We are inheriting a crisis, and it will be our job and opportunity to mend the world we are given.”
