(Okay, I'm suddenly back in a rut right now, but this question is worth asking anyway.) I graduated recently and got a job. Now I've got a bit of disposable income, and coincidentally some stability in life. So I dicided that the best place to apply free money and effort would be major global problems. I've identified a number of them that I'd like to be involved in solving, i.e. Overpopulation Massive consumption of energy and resources unsustainable farming Pollution Landfills and waste accumulation Global environmental problems , but I've got almost no idea where to start going at them. The one I've got a bit of a clue about is overpopulation. I think one of the good angles is bettering education and learning, because they appear to be negatively correlated with reckless reproduction. Of course, I don't know where I could come in there. Anyway, any leads, please? I'd ask you to also keep in mind that I'm from Russia, and not that good or keen on interacting with people in real life, so no "become a politician". I'd like to do my small part, so I could feel like I'm doing something.
