Living in another country is difficult as it is. Moving there, finding someone to interact with or just to experience your traditions in a society may be very difficult. This leads me to our topic today; the challenges we face living in a multicultural society.
On Wednesday the 31. of October, students in Norway had an international day. On this day, every year, we go around from classroom to classroom to understand different situations around the world and why we need to help them the next day on the OD-day. This year the main cause was the Israel and Palestine conflict.
In class today, we watched a movie called Girl Rising. It was about the benefits of educating girls. The film introduced us to nine girls. Nine powerful, brave and mentally strong girls who were the start of something new. Something greater than we have seen before. The girl that inspired me most was a girl named Ruksana.

Since 2000, the progress made for universal primary education has been immense. This has been proven by the numbers in the article. For instance, we can see that in developing regions reached 91% in 2015, even the worldwide number of children out of school has dropped by almost a half. In addition, more girls than ever before are in school and are increasing their literacy.
There are many factors that have an impact on who can have clean drinking water. This can for example effect women and their education and women’s lives in major ways. In this blog post, I will explain and discuss the connections that are made such, as economics for further education for girls and lack of water to specifically women, and their importance.
Today in our class we worked on the UN sustainable development goals. We went through the different goals and later had to figure out which ones we thought are most important to us.
The goals I would like to work more towards and that I find intriguing are gender equality and climate change.
