Essay About Youth Today

Today, being not only a global citizen, but also a student, I realise that I have a moral responsibility towards the environment

From a very young age, I have been hearing phrases such as “Go Green” and “Save the Environment”. Little did I know that I would grow up to be one of those teenagers that can’t stand a small plastic bag being disposed in the trash bin when there is an option of using a recycle bin.

Almost every country in the world has issued its own set of environmental laws. According to me, that notion is the starting point of ridding this Earth of environmental disasters. Laws are important because they keep the society intact. More often than not, laws are the only weapons capable of controlling the activities of modern age. Environmental laws are no different from other laws that have been in place for centuries.

However, I firmly believe that without environmental awareness and a sense of responsibility towards the environment, these laws will not serve their purpose. Along with laws, the governments are also supporting various kinds of campaigns held by people of all ages.

Today, being not only a global citizen, but also a student, I realise that I have a moral responsibility towards the environment. It is the youth of today that is going to bear the consequences of the actions of today. It is our duty to ensure that our actions only do well to the environment and do not cause any more harm than what is already done. As the young generation, our voice matters. Our words are starting to matter.

With the UAE government continuously being supportive, students are now working together as one team towards a common goal. For example, two years ago, I established a volunteer group named ‘Miracle Dynamos’. This student group works towards making the world a more environment friendly place to live in.

The youth of today is the future of tomorrow. We owe so much to this planet after all the opportunities and education that we have been provided with. The least we can do is to ensure that mankind nurtures mother Earth forever. To me and probably to the youth across the world, this is just the beginning of us taking over environmentally.

Have you noticed something wrong with the vocabulary that the young people of the modern world have been using? If not, I suggest you take another look. The words and sentence structure has become lazy and lost its rightful rank of importance, falling into the youths’ view of boring and tedious. The vast amount of words are slowing decaying to the last of their lives, soon to be un- or misused by the masses, some even becoming extinct out of malpractice or ignorance of the current existence.

Have you noticed something wrong with the vocabulary that the young people of the modern world have been using? If not, I suggest you take another look. The words and sentence structure has become lazy and lost its rightful rank of importance, falling into the youths’ view of boring and tedious. The vast amount of words are slowing decaying to the last of their lives, soon to be un- or misused by the masses, some even becoming extinct out of malpractice or ignorance of the current existence. Sadly, definitions have even been altered due to being wrongly used in everyday speak, mainly misused by the youth of today. I will talk about how some or most young adults speak, how it can carry into adulthood, the cons of using the language, ways to encourage the use of proper and advanced language in speaking and in writing and more.

The tone that many young people take on that is informal, and that is all right, especially if it is around friends or family. The problem is that some of them do not understand the appropriate times to change their tone and slang language to fit a more proper or formal setting. Instead, they continue to use the slang and inappropriate tones that are normal for their everyday conversations. This can cause complications for the youth in certain situation, such as, job interviews or when talking to an adult who is not familiar with them. The speaking mannerisms may also show up in writings, causing hardship on students in classes that require essays.
