Question 1 :
WHAT WILL THE YOUTH INHERIT?
1. In a world where global climate negotiations are sluggish and bring few tangible results, young people – who will inherit the problems developing today – are starting to come together to give their concerns a louder voice.
2. In South Africa, more and more organisations are providing platforms for the youth to be heard, and to change things in their communities.
3. One of the largest and most active of these is Generation Earth, a youth organisation that has branches in schools across the country. Ella Bella, its co-founder, has used the organisation as a platform to talk to political leaders from around the world – from former president Nelson Mandela to diplomats at the United Nations General Assembly. Her message is that young people will inherit the world, so they should have a say in how it is run now. The organisation regularly holds summits and also gives young people practical tips on how to change their surroundings.
