1. In communities in which you are familiar, whether you are living in the place where you grew up or in a different community at the present time, what issues do you see around you that could be alleviated by the idea to “think globally, act locally”?
What is the local issue and how does it relate to global issues? On a global level, explain what actors create/perpetuate the issue, if applicable, or conversely what actors work to address the issue and how?
(Be sure to think about what could be done by who on the local level to prepare for the final assignment in this class.)
2. Please be sure to reference your sources in Turabian format.
– I grew up in Oklahoma City, OK.

Your letter should have a professional tone and look and follow standard letter format. Add legitimacy to your claims by providing citations using the Turabian style and include a list of your references (required). Use 12 pitch, Times New Roman font and 1 inch margins.
