The world today is definitely not a paradise. Hunger, abuse, poverty, pollution, violence and crime are all too common. Granted, the world never has been, and probably never will be perfect, but that means there’s lots of room for improvement! You can help to create a better world for the future. And it’s not as hard as you think. Change is good – it is progress. Below are how to implement positive change:
Become an advocate. Speak up about injustices in the world and get your friends involved, too. Organize fundraisers to help raise money for your chosen charity or cause. If you can’t raise money, add your voice to those already campaigning to end poverty, war, injustice, sexism, racism, or corruption in the world. Activism can start at any age. Craig Kielburger was twelve years old when he became an activist for child labour rights. He went on, with his brother, to start Free the Children and Me to We.
Don’t intentionally hurt others. Imagine a society where every single person did not look to harm another individual. You wouldn’t have to lock your doors at night and self-defense would be a thing of the past. You may think one person cannot make a difference. The whole world is just seven billion individuals. Just think, you may inspire someone to be like you and start a chain reaction!
