A database of the world problems: ready for you to solve

October 28th, 2009

Wouldn’t it be neat if there were such a thing?

A database where you could browse the problems, pick one and try to tackle solving it.

Clearly you need to define when something becomes a ‘problem’ – I suggest based on the average detrimental effect it has per person world wide.

On that basis some of the top issues would still be:

  • Poverty
  • Sustainability & environmental concerns
  • Education
  • Peak oil?

You see when posed with a challenge humanity fights to overcome it (hey we’ve come this far right?) so why not expose these problems in a direct light.  Arm people with the constraints, barriers and requirements of  a solution and let them figure out how to fix it.

What are you doing all the way down here? You could:
