A Skeptical Environmentalist.

Youth have both concerns and special responsibilites in relation to the environment. A number of environmental risks and hazards disproportionately affect young people, who have to live for an extended period with the deteriorating environment passed on to them by earlier generations. Our youth will be compelled to engage in new forms of action and activism that will generate effective responses to ecological challenges. Fortunately youth have a special talent for invention and development of new forms of activism. One way to equip young people to deal with environmental concerns is through more effective environmental education. Much of this information young people receive about these issues comes from the media. Therefore educators and the media should make greater and more concerted efforts to promote a larger process of social learning for sustainable development. We as a society must assist young people in developing their capacities to create empowerment in youth, enabling them to create successful initiative of their surroundings and give them the needs resources. Our governments must peruse a coherent human right policy, in which efforts to promote and protect all humans rights are integrated into all aspects of youth programs. Ensuring respect for human rights is a youth policy goal in itself, but it also must be a means to achieving youth developing.
