    Are young people politicians?
    My answer is yes, because it must be because young people are the force of the future, and they are considered the mainstay in the progress and construction of every society. He urged others to actively participate in his progress.

    Politics is the base and strength of any given country. Politics acts like pillars of a country and if those pillars are broken then a country wouldn't exist.

    To make the pillars strong the young people of the country needs to be political.

    According to me yes young people are political. In most of the Democratic countries families are always discussing about politics on the dinner table like what are the pros and cons of a particular government? What all things have they changed in the society? Which party should we vote in the next elections?This thing makes young people more interested in politics.

    Moreover If we cast our eyes over the crowds that gather at protests , look at some movements like black lives matter and watch students all over the world strike for climate change. We will get to know that the young people are political.

    I feel that the young people are more in tune with politics online than in real life. They’re not disengaged with political issues, they’re just disconnected from the system.

    I would say that this question goes both ways because the young people of this current generation are two minded they can choose to be political and then choose not to the next time they are asked. Another factor could be that some young people became political due to peer pressure, like no one wants to feel left out in their friend group and if your friends majorly talk about politics, a person could be pressured to learn about politics such that they can fit in with the rest of the group.

  • patient_fruit | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    Yes in my opinion ,young people are political because in schools democracy is exercised to show students that their is freedom of expression where by student contest for different posts like here in Uganda at my school St.Andrew Kaggwa Gombe high school ,we are allowed to be political through electing leaders of our choice so meaning that young people are political

  • polite_football | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    yes, i think young people are political because now days at schools,some students decide to take on posts like headgirl,head monitors,dormitory leaders.These first carryout campaigns to look for voters and this is done by using convincing words to their fellow students,some use gifts to soften the hearts of the voters,others design posters with thier desiring words like ''VOTE FOR PEACE, VOTE FOR CHANGE".

  • pioneering_orca | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    There is a group of young politicians and there is a group of non-political youth because young people have a major role in building the future. Young people are an indispensable group and have the ability to bear

  • cooperative_dolphin | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians?
    My answer is yes, the youth must participate politically, because the youth stage is the stage of giving and creativity, and this creativity and giving is a precious revolution that cannot be compensated. Young people can change society. Therefore, they are the ones who make the future. Involvement in politics is the low level of culture among young people, and engagement occurs for many reasons, including many of the pressures they are exposed to, whether family or social.
    Young people also represent a large proportion of society. They are the crown of the nation and the main effective and vital driver in all political, humanitarian, economic and cultural fields. They are the ones who reform and change their societies for the better. Youth are the present that makes the future. Understanding the mainstay in the progress and construction of every society. There are many examples of people leaders Including Napoleon Bonaparte and Yasser Arafat and others.

  • storytelling_cherry | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    Yes, I think they are politicians because after the reduction of the age of nomination to 25, the percentage of political participation was increased, which led to development in the economic and political fields, and because of the issuance of the United States resolution "International Year of Youth" in 1985, young people have the right to make decisions and have the right to participate in politics, which gave them opportunities to influence various aspects of life, which led to the development of society

  • charismatic_eel | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians?
    My answer is yes because many people believe that youth are leaders of tomorrow however,they are leader of today , and it's unique experiences and different origins that will help shape their political attitudes therefore , it is imperative they learn more about politics and get involved to channel their energies for positive change , Thus , becoming vanguards for the promotion and protection of democracy

  • centered_robin | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    In my view of heads of state and their policies, most of them are old people, ages 40 and up, but there were leaders in other countries when they started politics, they were 28 years old. Like Korea, but I think young people are not politicians

    But the elderly have high experiences with the passage of time. Young people in their states only want to control and rebel against the state, and they do not bear this great responsibility, but the old people mix with leaders from different countries and they can control state affairs without disputes and provide aid to the state, so the young people are not politicians.

  • content_shark | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 07 Nov 2022

    Obviously it would be Yes, young people are political. As young people are much more sincere, focused to their future and have been gaining a lot of skills , knowledge and have experienced the life. If we are focusing on young people to be political, probably they can as they see the future of the country, and obviously the youth are the star of tomorrow who can be making the world bright and shine .And there's no doubt that the youth are much more creative and explore a lot by their own and also they can change the old society into the new society of positive thoughts. And also the youth can take the country to progress, prosperity and development. So, I think young people are political

  • precious_cat | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 07 Nov 2022

    Yes, young people are political.
    As much as I say yes, I don't mean that all young people are political because I personally I am not really political but I say yes because I study with people who are political , this is because of their personal experience with this world. I mean when you just interact with them you can really see your future leader, not only in their words but in their advice as well, when they are advising you or anyone else you really see a future leader who is going to solve global problems like food crisis.
    Young people are also political because they are able to contest as prefects in their schools. As I said earlier that not all young people are political because even during these contests not that everyone is interested but those few that are interested contest and people select whom they really see changing things for them just like how it is during selecting of country leaders not forgetting they both have campaigns where they all tell the people what they are planning to change and develop. And when they are chosen they work hand in hand with the administration to solve people's problems and develop the school in many ways just like how it is with the politics among old people.

  • highspirited_king | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 07 Nov 2022

    This depends on their age because they have different thinking capacities like ( 10 and above) are able to think for themselves but indeed young children are political, in ways like democracy is practiced in some schools where children are allowed to vote for their own leader and they put a minimum age they should be to vote because if you look at the 6-9 yr olds they are not able to choose for themselves because as long as they are given a snack or sweet they can easily vote for you but 10yrs and above even when given a bribe they can take it but when they reach voting time they see vote who is worthy of that position.

    Politics are also practiced in schools like when they organise political debates and quizzes they give reasonable opinions during the process and they can also make their own choices and solve problems easily.

  • champion_camel | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 07 Nov 2022

    Are young people political?
    My answer is no, because young people see what happen to their elders when its the voting season. During this time of "voting" the candidates start their open campaigns and this is the same time people start protests and with protests we all know the police or the riot control is forced to act and people die in this session making these young people timid or for that matter frightened of voting candidates representing the same area they come from.
    So, in my opinion young people aren't political. Or they are political, but maybe they are just so frightened of the outcome of the protests.

  • affectionate_durian | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    yes sometimes but other times no according to news most young people make a lot of mistakes but other than tthat sorta.

  • committed_gooseberry | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    are young people political This is a question many people have been asking ! And in my eyes it goes two different ways . Because politics are like pillars that hold up the country and if any of them are broken the society and country would not exist.

    And to make all of these pillars strong we need young adults that are political .

    And according to my opinion yes they are. Even though you may have seen multiple documentaries about it being good or bad, And since people may understand this information they happen to talk about it , Like at the dinner table or even on live tv.
    Without no one spreading this information it will not be heard and if its unheard a lot of pillars will fall down / Pillars are known as the stable holding of the community and if any are broke or not correct, most countries wouldn't exist or be the same .}

    Moreover If we just cast our eyes over the crowds that gather at protests , / We can look at some movements like black lives matter and we can watch students all over the world strike that strike for climate change. We can and will get to know that the young people are political.

    plus I feel that many of the young people are more in tune with politics online than they are in real life. They’re not disengaged with political issues, But they’ just happened to have disconnected from the system.

    Are young people political?
    I think young people are rather political because young people like to talk about women's rights, lgbtq+ rights, blm, and abortion rights and love to share their opinion on topics like this. According to statistics, 70% of people born in the late 1990's and early 2000's say that they are involved in a social or political cause, also 52% of all people, even young people themself, believe that young people influence how the world creates change.

  • poetic_nation | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    Young people are yes are political because according to me people with intense preferences tend to become more engaged in politics; they are more likely to donate time and money to campaigns. or to attend political rallies the more money. that has one and the more highly educated one is. the more likely he or she will form intense preferences and take political action. In conclusion yes young people are political.

  • wonderful_duck | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    Young people are not political. This is because most young people don't really understand politics. And since they don't really understand politics they just go off of what they see on ads, the news, or what they hear from other people like their parents. And plus most young people don't really talk about politics unless its about something like Trump is bad or Obama good, they don't really know any more than that.

  • terrific_ukulele | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    No i do not think young people are political, because young people tend to do things like get their phone, hang-out,gaming and things like that in their free time. They tend to push thing like that off to the side and forget that things like that are important. Also younger people are also busy with things like school, collage, and getting a job. Young people also only vote 51.4% of the time, and that's only people aging from 18-20. I just think older people (people 30+) are more educated in things political.

  • memorable_independence | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    young people are not political because they would want something that just benefits them,they just do what they want to do i mean even adults act like that its not just young people

  • positive_grapefruit | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    Yes, they have the right to vote and 36% of young Americans are involved in politics but 45% thinks its a negative effect on their health.

  • spirited_plum | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    I believe that young people are not political.Young people including teen and tweens are not as political as most adults since young people are normally on social media watching videos that are meant to make them laugh.Most young people don't watch the news like adults do,they don't read informative articles based on politics like adults do,I'm sure that young people don't pay attention to the government.Lets be honest even if young people see anything politics related or anything government related I'm pretty sure they won't care.Based of something I read it states that,"36% of young Americans believe that being involved in politics rarely achieves anything.This percentage has increased from previous years."Based of that information it shows that most young people don't care about being involved in anything political.

  • imaginative_chemistry | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    Are young people political?
    Yes, young people are political. One reason is because there are many ways to be political. For example, if you like art, you can make a poster. Another reason is some people make accounts on social media. Another reason is that young people believe the current government cares about young people like them. Some people are not interested in political activities, but some people are political. Young people globally said they would boycott a product,company, country or state because of a political, social or environmental stance.

    Are young people political?
    Yes I do think young people are political. At the age of 18-29 some young people are in college and they are political. Some people may also think that all young people are on social media and yes this is true but so many young people spread news on social media about the law, global crisis, and voting, etc. The people on social media are young people and the young people spread news to other young people and the cycle keeps going more young people become political and get more and more political overtime. It is also known that 79% of young people get news daily and nearly three quarters say they get their news from social media. So social media is not bad for young people who use it all the time.

    Young people do watch the news young people also vote and sometimes people forget even though they say it on the news... EVERY.VOTE.MATTERS

  • awesome_desert | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    Are young people political?
    My answer is yes, to this day you can go on any social media instagram, facebook, tiktok anything and find "blm" or "our bodys our choice" stuff about lgbtq ect this shows that young people are political even if its just a little text in a bio. Not only that young people above 18 or so can vote and there is a slight chance they do vote.

  • strong_opinion | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 07 Nov 2022

    I say yes young people are political, because many people on social media make protests with young people who are political and support other non-political people. Seeing my family members that are young in the 2020 election I see them cheering and supporting Trump instead of Biden.

  • giving_mood | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Yes, young people are politicians, because the youth stage is the stage of creativity and thinking. At this stage, young people have wonderful ideas and innovations for the development of society, and they are understanding in all situations because they have many skills and wonderful scientific news.

  • shy_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Teens need to have the enought knowledge about politics to make them participate and also this is going to help the country when they are selecting new presidents for the country and not having someone that is just going to make bad decisions for the country politics not only mean laws, taxes or some legai issyes that can be seen as boring. Politics have a direct influence in out Lifes and as soon as we being yo understand this and care about it We will be starting to build a better life a better world

  • committed_tsunami | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians? Yes, they are politicians, and they are also the youth of the present and the future, and they are the mainstay of building and developing every society. Also in the youth stage is the stage of creativity and giving. Young people think with positive thinking and different from all the old thinking, they think about something new, but some young people, we can say 20% of the world’s youth are not considered political youth, they may be lazy at this stage and do not like to work

  • accomplished_frog | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians?
    Yes, first we look at some countries. If the percentage of young people exceeds half of the percentage, then this is the stage in which countries rise because of them
    They also have physical strength and wars are waged against them and they are able to defend
    There is a problem of mistrust between young people and governments and parties and they are working to increase political problems, which reduces the chances of young people to become politicians.

  • cultured_gazelle | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians? Why and why not?*
    I believe that not all young people in society are politicians. There is a political type and there is a non-political type. But I support the political youth because of his prominent importance in society because if he is a president, he can easily control society.
    Knowing that the political youth is the young man who deals with people in a soft and gentle manner and can easily take his things without relying on violence

  • idealistic_song | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 08 Nov 2022

    Young people are not political because they do not know politics as well as the older people do because they have witnessed a lot more than as, there are even some that were around the time Uganda got independence and when Museveni fought in the bushes and when he came into power so they have more knowledge and wisdom about politics than the younger people who just get information on politics from news, there are even some who land on them on some social media apps by mistake and then after they say that they know politics yet politics needs experience and determination which younger people do not have. So they don't qualify to be political in anyway.

  • excited_artist | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Yes, of course
    Young people are considered a vital and effective element in society and have the ability to influence various aspects of life, including politics
    Young people face many different issues that only young people can solve and understand. Therefore, the participation of young people in political life is very important to help young people and enable them to improve their living conditions and enhance their political presence.

  • genius_introduction | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 08 Nov 2022

    I think young people can be political
    In our time, all ongoing political events are very widely covered in the media.
    In order for young people to form their own opinion about current political events, young people must be well educated, know history and draw conclusions.
    Practice shows that it is much easier to influence the worldview of younger people.
    Very often, incorrectly formulated slogans can motivate young people to take to the streets and participate in uprisings, strikes, various and unauthorized political events.
    Only thinking educated literate people can assess what is happening in the country, draw the right conclusions and actively participate in the political life of the country

  • fabulous_orchard | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 08 Nov 2022

    No, Because they haven't got the full awareness and their knowledge is not thecomplete for such things and their strong excitement is pushing them for trying to change for the sake of change only and all the time the change is their main goal but it is so far from what is really needed. In my opinion, its negative effect is more than its positive effect. I think that what happened in my country more than ten years ago, when I was ababy and recently, I am trying to know about the revolution that happened and the leaders of the revolution. They were people who made a big change. This change has changed my mind completely and if you consider me as a young person I should possess the flexibility or the ability to discuss and change ideas in order to participate in political events.

  • calm_starfish | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Firstly, young people have different perspectives and a host of different ideas. By allowing them to voice their opinion we could be opening and moving the political world forward. This is not only good for society, but necessary for society. If the young did not engage with politics, even if it is through pressure groups, there would be many issues with our political establishments in trying to keep policy fair and sustainable for future generations. For example, equal rights for women required many young women to engage with the issue at hand. Why? Because they had strong feelings for the issue at hand, and that is something that countries should work to increase--interest and opinion on political matters

  • fairminded_chocolate | Rex Mill Middle STEM School B | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    government are necessary because they maintain law and order laws are necessary for society to function Life in a society without laws would be unsafe and unpredictable of state and their policies most of them are old people, ages 40 and up but there were leaders in other countries when they started politics they were 28 years old Like Korea but I think young people are not politicians and because of it

  • fairminded_leopard | Rex Mill Middle STEM School B | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Younger like 40 year and older people shoud be poltics so thy will not forget suff and older people forget suff easyer and yonger people might get picked more and older poeple might get picked less and because younger people make more progress thean older people and get to thair density

  • involved_melon | Rex Mill Middle STEM School D | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians?
    No, young people are not politicians because older people are the ones to vote cause young people don't have the knowledge to vote.

  • astounding_deer | Rex Mill Middle STEM School D | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Are young people political? Yes, I think that young people are political. Because if you look at the votes from yesterday then you will see that young people had a lot in this election. Also we kids use democracy everyday. For example a group of kids decide if they want to eat ice cream or doughnuts so they will have a democracy to see which they will eat or how many people want what. SO do you think young people are political? Add a comment to explain if you do or don't

  • vibrant_outcome | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Are young people political? My inference would be that young people are not political. Most young people between the ages 18-29 tend to focus on their social media accounts, their looks, and lots of them get plastic surgery to look like a celebrity. Some young Americans believe that voting and being involved in politics rarely achieve anything, these numbers seem to increase over the years. Young people also say that politics has a negative impact on their health. I say that young people need more experience of voting in order to understand how it changes things and they need to vote.

  • marvellous_armadillo | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    In my opinion young people are not political because people who range the age 18-29 do not really care about how their city is and how bad or how good it will be, Young people can have mixed emotions about there city about how much they love it and how much they hate it, 36% of young Americans believe that being involved in politics rarely achieves anything. This percentage has increased from previous years. if young people don't believe that politics can help them that can mean that young Americans do not care about politics.

  • spirited_plum | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    In my honest opinion,I argue that young people are not political.To begin, voting isn't really fun for young people,a lot of young people think that voting takes up too much time and think there's no need to do so.Also,young people aren't taught about voting in school or get little to no information about politics.based off an list from an article i've read it lists,
    1.young people are often seen as groups and not individuals.
    2.parents influence if young people should vote.
    3.political parties aren't what they claim to be.
    The list goes on but i'm just going to give and explain those 3 reasons."1.young people are often seen as groups and not individuals".Too me this means,that young people are often seen as one type of category and portrayed horribly.
    Young people are often portrayed as "self-centered", "carefree", "irresponsible" and "menaces to society" according to the internet,which is definitely not true. Young people want to be seen as themselves and not by stereotypes created by the internet."2.parents influence if young people should vote."Again,in my opinion, this means most young people that want to vote or thinks about being involved in politics and the government are often told by their parents or an adult.They're often told, "vote for someone" or "have you voted yet, you're at that age to vote". And for some people that gets really annoying and causes them to feel forced to vote for someone.If parents aren't involved in anything political their kids probably won't either.Lets be honest if your parents never brought up anything about politics you probably wont know anything about it either."3.political parties aren't what they claim to be."This is self explanatory but still, candidates,republicans and anyone apart of the government or politics have lied about something to get them you to vote and believe in them.according to an article it claimed that"Trump promised that his tax plan would benefit the middle class,not the rich." and the article also said"That no-tax-cut-for-the-rich pledge was crafted so as not to alienate his working-class supporters.but it was false."
    There are so many news reports,articles,and interviews about presidents,republicans,and candidates lying in order to gain your trust.These are just some reasons that young people don't get involved with politics.There's still so many reasons that i will list in the future but this is all for now.Feel free to argue if you like.

  • spirited_plum | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 10 Nov 2022

    "Are young people political?"
    In the past i've listed many reasons why young people are not political,but how do we change that?
    (DISCLAIMER:This list does NOT change MY opinion!!!To me young people are NOT political this list is to inform some ways that young people can start being political!!!!)

    I came up with a list of how we can start getting young people into politics so WE can do something about all the problems that are going on in the world.
    1.Being involved in assemblies and discussions about the whole voting process.This can help young people understand what to expect when you vote.
    2.watch TV programs about politics and voting.Watching these can help you get into politics.
    3.council meetings which involve young people.Adults should start involving younger people in meetings about politics so they know more about that subject.
    4.Schools should start having lessons about voting,Schools should start having mini elections(we had a mini election at our school so that's something more schools should do)
    5.get young people involved with activities to do with voting.Getting younger people involved in voting activities will make it fun for them to start voting.
    6.giving homework associated with politics.Having homework associated with politics younger people will give them more information on politics.

    These are just a few ways to get young people into politics ,but these are the most important to me!
    Once again this list does NOT change my opinion on young people,I still think they are NOT into politics.These are ways they can start getting into politics.

    All these things i've listed can also go back to my opinion that young people are not political,most of the things i've listed talks about how making young people involved in political subjects can help them be more interested in politics.Since young people are not as involved there not interested in voting,so that's one reason that they're not as political as adults.

  • delightful_road | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    Maybe, cause to be a politician you must have a political point of view and information about your country or district but today's generation is so' in social media that they don't take such things seriously. They can't differentiate between truth and lie. Mostly the supporters of the different political parties don't know the background or the storyline of the discussion by hearing a few unpleasant words about their party they get hyper and protests take place. So, the country's leadership can't be given to such a generation.

  • poetic_banana | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    Are young people political? Yes, I think, young people are the most valuable stage of life. Giving is the invaluable and irreparable wealth. Countries rise up and they are the present that will make the future. There are some young people who care about politics and really want to be Politicians, but there's a class of them who don't care about politics, who are thoughtless and irrational in their thinking, especially in our time, so I think not all young people are politicians, but I hope they become so and they can.

    The question should be are young people given the opportunity to be political. I mean it all sums up to our leaders. Yes, young people are political but because they are not taken seriously, they slowly loose interest. I mean its the law of life not practicing something we take part in makes the zeal and love for it, we would eventually have no passion for it at all. In my school for example we have something called students week, where the students control the school, we teach and also do some basic work. If counties could do that more and more young people would have the zeal for politics. Also I feel young people leading would be good they have this love for everything they want a better place and also peace and progress so, yes, young people are political if and only if they are given the chance.

  • lucky_agency | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 11 Nov 2022

    I think that young people could be political and are involved in every affair of the country,because they are the upcoming century of politics and order of the country so they choose how their country could be better under which ruler and at what time that ruler is more suitable alongside that they will outlast the old and after they become old ,the young people in that century will choose their future in a country that they want to make better.

  • sincere_coconut | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 12 Nov 2022

    Yes , young people are more political I would like to give an example, I am in grade 6 like other students , i have many heroes found in my books when pakistan came into being those heroes did marvvellous to get separate homeland i love to read about them and they were political. Histories of every country are full of such heroes and all those heroes are still found in our books in videos, films ,magzines Their births are celebrated till now so politics is not away far from us .
    Now a days ,in my country if I listen the speech of to day 's political leaders on social media. I become more political. In my country tiktokers play background romantic songs that I love to watch .

  • glorious_politics | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 12 Nov 2022

    Yes, because politics is related to all matters of life, and youth have a broader background about life and its affairs, which improves the political situation somewhat. Therefore, young people must have a space in politics and political life.

  • accurate_knowledge | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 12 Nov 2022

    Young people are the consciousness of the political mainstream class. Politicians rely to run their politics after knowing the mind of the young people. It is tantamount to say that young people provide the saddle on which a political person sits. Young people make the direction of the politics to go in. To some extent young people can be taken as being political because when they sense that politician not following their expectations, they change there choice for the future - and reject the politicians politically who deceive them.

  • dependable_region | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 12 Nov 2022

    Getting involved in politics is not as easy as some people think. Therefore, it is not easy to say that young people have a desire to get involved in politics, and in order for young people to participate politically, they must assume many of the tasks that fall upon them and succeed in these tasks.

  • altruistic_cliff | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 13 Nov 2022

    I think 🤔 that young people are not so political as elders because they want freedom from all the rules and regulations and want live a life on their own rules.

  • sincere_coconut | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 13 Nov 2022

    Since the last twenty yrs ,in pakistan nd is am sure in other countries too, schools conduct elections for student council . Now the elected students start to make mini posters nd badges for students with attractive nd catchy descriptions of voting in their favour .what schools r doing to create sense of responsibility ,confidence nd above all leadership . Hence from this age students begin to learn politics on small forum . Mini leaders during election busy in campaign involving their parents, siblings nd friends. The voters talk at home also nd with friends about who r their favourite candidates .this never ends here students unoins in colleges nd universities also allow sts to b a part of politics. Now social media is giving exposure abt politics to the young people. So younger r more political.

  • eager_atom | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 13 Nov 2022

    My answer is: Yes, young people are politicians, because young people think about politics a lot in order to achieve their goals, which is to develop their country and work for its prosperity. Every young man thinks about making his country the greatest and I am one of these young people. That there are young people who do not think politically, but they are few, and I hope that all young people think politically.

  • best_groundhog | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians? Yes, they can be successful politicians, when we change outdated political concepts in their minds towards politics, and when we push them to political and partisan participation. Effective, young people need to enhance the desire and enthusiasm for political participation, as young people are strong and effective political actors if they find opportunities..

  • free_seal | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    Youth participation is one of the forms of participatory democracy, and it is also one of the forms of good governance, and it is a form of popular oversight, and the participation of youth will enhance political development, and activating the political participation of youth will reduce the state of political vacuum experienced by young people through their marginalization and lack of attention to their issues in programs And the activities of political parties, which requires a review of how to activate the energies of youth and re-attract them to parties and public work, and activate the role of civil institutions, by reformulating their priorities and programs in line with the national agenda, in order to achieve integration in the work between them and official institutions.
    And if youth issues are many and varied, the issue of youth participation has become the topic of the hour today, and more than ever beforePolitical participation plays an important role in developing the mechanisms and rules of democratic governance among young people.

  • calm_deer | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    I think that young people are not political, including teenagers, because young people are not like adults. I watch my father every day watching politics, but young people from 18 to 29 do not watch. They are not interested in politics. They watch fun and interesting clips on mobile phones with the aim of laughing far from politics, despite the fact that the number of young people in Gaza More than females, and most of them have smart devices on which all social media programs are installed, but they do not follow politics on a daily basis, but one day may pass knowledge of politics in times of war and bombing in Gaza. They participate in channels on social media, especially on Telegram, such as the Gaza Now channel, and the channel Al Jazeera on TV

  • gentle_cat | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    The youth of today have been subjected to many frustrations by the politicians. The youth built their dreams on the promises made by the candidates in the elections or by some politicians to achieve their dreams, such as obtaining a job or housing or making projects to employ the unemployed youth. Therefore, the youth are not politicians because they are tired of that promises that do not fulfill their future dreams, and this is very dangerous because they will waste their free time on undesirable things.

  • spirited_snow | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians??I think that some young people are politicians and the other type is not. Sometimes there are young people who are interested in politics, publishing news and documenting events, and some of them do not care about that at all, but from the age of 18-25 years, the life of adolescence begins, which is the most important. Sometimes there are young people who are interested in politics and are interested in daily news and like to open the doors of political knowledge
    Some of them are not interested in politics and focus on studying other sciences such as medicine
    And I think that there is a group of young people who are interested in politics and others are not

  • joyful_yuzu | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    In my opinion ,most young people do not understand the meaning of politics . They are policized and influeenced by what they see on social media or what is on TV. Other, like teenagers , are looking for trends and fame, so they don't care about politics

  • emotional_moon | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    In my opinion, no, because in adolescence, young people become not responsible for their decisions, and their decisions change from time to time, and they are in the stage of recklessness, so they cannot enter into political decisions, because this makes society dangerous, and decisions are bad. On the other hand, I think that it is possible to benefit from young people when they are over the age of 18, to be able to build the future wisely and to be responsible for any decision they take, whether political or otherwise, and also they go through the stage of giving, which is the most extreme stage, and they are a precious and irreplaceable wealth, while With their goodness, countries rise, and they are a vital and very important element in taking any international decision, and they are the present that makes the future.

  • glorious_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    Most of our youth are apolitical.
    Our youth are in constant engagement with social media, and their only concern is to show themselves on Facebook, Instagram, tuktuk, or any other site.
    They are in restaurants to show what they eat and drink, or their pictures in stores, what they buy and wear.
    Or with joys, how they rejoice and dance.
    This became all the interest of young people
    They do not look at politics or any instance,
    They do not know the news of what is happening in their home and family, so how can they know the news of their country or the problems of their society
    Our youth in our present time is the phrase they deserve (blind imitation), so there is a cloud over their eyes, and their minds only think of trivialities.

  • successful_horse | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 15 Nov 2022

    I see that it is time for us as young people to break perceptions and stereotypes that we can't get involved because we don't know because we aren't old enough because we don't because we aren't enough it's quite the contrary we do know and we are are enough it's time we get involved and have a say in our future because we are the future and I am excited about the future that I see the one that is more youth friendly one that encourages us to get involved to voice our opinions and concerns without shutting us down you have to start somewhere and somewhere is often messy and full of mistakes but in order to learn from these mistakes the way l did you must be willing to continually question your own point of view maybe change your own mind and in doing so change other Minds too but remember you have to start somewhere to get anywhere✨

  • beloved_planet | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 15 Nov 2022

    Yes, I think that young people are politicians, because the youth stage is the most difficult stage of life, and they are the crown and glory of the nation's with their righteousness countries will rise. The youth in any society is a vital element and they work on the civilized development of the society and it's the present that make the future and that the Participation of young people in politics is the finest expression of citizenship that helps to exercise political power. And they are an effective and decisive element , and they have the energy and the a bility to give. The participation of young people is one of the forms of good governance and enhance the political developments of their country.

  • unique_night | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 15 Nov 2022

    It is possible to take advantage of the advanced programs implemented by some countries to encourage young people to participate in the formulation and decision-making, for example by establishing a Shura field for young people, so that they are given an opportunity to express their opinions and discuss various issues related to their future, in addition to establishing national youth parliaments from the age group of 18 24- To provide an opportunity for young people to contribute to programs that need young people, programs that absorb their energies, aspirations and vision for the future, so that they have a role in the reconstruction of the country.

  • inventive_artist | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 15 Nov 2022

    I feel like most young people want to be political but they are not given the chance and opportunity to be. In most countries in the world using my country Nigeria as an example they practice gentocracy where they mostly allow people who are elderly to rule because they are stereotyped to this mentality that the young ones are not fully equipped to rule the nation. Well from what I have seen some young people have tried coming out to contest in elections but they didn't really progress. The best way to solve this is if they could start giving young people a chance to contest in elections because every body whether young or old as far as you have attained the age range is allowed the right and has to contest in elections, so let the voices of the young ones be heard.

  • sincere_coconut | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 15 Nov 2022

    Why younger r more political ??
    The reason of this being more political when the nation needs revolution as in my country now says ex-prime minister Imran had announced real freedom march against ruling prime minister..younger r more political becoz they see that this person would achieve a real freedom from the corruption that the previous nd current ruling leaders have done nd becoz of their corruption we r economically weak . Other instances I would like to give of Palestine nd occupied kashmir ..where younger r more political than any other country the reason is revolution they want for them nd for their nation and besides if they had seen their forefathers in need of basic rights not given to them due to some political leaders .
    One more thing ..in recent times many young political leaders r also members of national provincial assemblies ..some federal ministers r also young .. they they deliver speeches they use some verses that r liked by younger people.. its trend here in pakistan a lot of youngers use social media apps insta grand nd tik tok by lipsing nd dubbing those political leaders . This is for what I believe that younger r more political

  • cultured_spring | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 15 Nov 2022

    I think that young people these days do not have much interest in politics
    Most people are busy with social media or scientific studies, so they feel that time is running fast and they do not have time to talk about politics or track it except in global matters some of the time, such as the American elections or the conflict in some countries, but many young people do not have the information that makes them talk about politics, so they feel reluctance to rest. And not exhaust himself.

    Are young people political? From my point of view, I think it's possible... Who among us did not play a political role in the school when he was the class leader or class secretary, or even involved in resolving disputes between friends, or even a problem with the school itself or with our brothers? All of this represents our political role as a teenager.... However, the question remains that experienced adults have more background due to their age and background information. Advances in science and technology and the revolution in communications, the Internet and social media have increased the interest and knowledge of politically educated young people with new policies. They are the most ambitious, have enthusiastic energy, curiosity, and are oriented towards self-assertion, and they are always critical and have the ability to change and progress, and this is one of the most important political advantages; Because politics is constantly changing. It is hard for conservatives and traditionalists to deal with this change... so it is easy for young people to deal with.... Most of us know about Mary Black, a 20-year-old British MP..... I expect young people to be the hope of the future.

  • honest_cat | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 16 Nov 2022

    Are young people political?! Yes, they are politicians because they have the greatest power and opinion in society. If you come to society, you will hardly see that there is a woman ruling the people, but the youth will work to strengthen the voice of women in society and promote their rights. And that young people like to mix in society. If an election campaign takes place, the young man will make propaganda for his friends and for the city in which he lives.

  • triumphant_mango | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 16 Nov 2022

    Yes young people are political but the reason it looks like we are not is the fact we try to get involved and we are told we have no idea what we are doing ,were are too young, what confuses me is the fact they say 'YOUNG PEOPLE ARE THEY LEADERS OF TOMORROW ' when is our tomorrow going to be , what kind off leaders would we be if we do not experience for ourselves what leadership is. Why reject us all the time when we come up.

  • accurate_chocolate | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 16 Nov 2022

    No, I do not think that young people are political because we are too young the only thing we could probably do is protest with our parents/families if our parents let us. It also depends on age 18 - 20 or older is when you can get more political. This is my opinion to others hope you like it.

  • reliable_date | Pointe South Middle School L | United States of America 16 Nov 2022

  • awesome_harmonica | Pointe South Middle School L | United States of America 16 Nov 2022

    I don't think young people would be politicians, because first of all, only adults, elders, or teenagers/pre-adults would be politicians, just not normal children or pre-teens. This is because children or kids have the lack of knowledge of what politicians are, but in social studies, SOME children or kids get taught about famous or important politicians if so. So changing my original question, it would be between a maybe, since we learn those in classes.

  • humorous_synthesizer | Pointe South Middle School K | United States of America 16 Nov 2022

    I think they should not be political because as a kid have a different mind set so a lot of kid will choose a person just because they lock good or false information that kid will not understand and unlike kids, adult look deeper in to it.

  • eager_seed | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 17 Nov 2022

    Young people are not political. This thing is because young people don't really understand politics. Because most of young people don't watch the news like adults do,and also they don't read informative articles about politics, since they don't really understand political they just go off what they see on ads or what they hear from their parents. Based on this information it's show that young people don't care about involved in anything political.

  • chatty_statement | Pointe South Middle School D | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

  • affectionate_honeyberry | Pointe South Middle School J | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

  • amazing_expression | Pointe South Middle School J | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

    I think that young people can be political , I think that because some young people do the early voting but some young people either do not vote at all or vote late , But young people relationships with politics is complex and problematized and young people have not felt included in the political realm. Young voters care about all the same issues that any other voter would care about.

  • sociable_quince | Pointe South Middle School J | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

  • resplendent_planet | Pointe South Middle School J | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

  • interesting_wildcat | Pointe South Middle School J | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

    In my opinon I think young people are political because they should be able to vote and be involved. They should also be heard. By voting, citizens are participating in the democratic process. Citizens vote for leaders to represent them and their ideas, and the leaders support the citizens' interests.

  • balanced_pie | Pointe South Middle School K | United States of America 17 Nov 2022

    Are young people political? Yes, I think that young people are political. Because if you look at the votes from yesterday then you will see that young people had a lot in this election. Also we kids use democracy everyday. For example a group of kids decide if they want to eat ice cream or doughnuts so they will have a democracy to see which they will eat or how many people want what.

Also 59% of voters aged between 17 and 29 say they plan to vote in the midterm elections. Based on this, young people are political.

Social media has also been a tool for young people to be political, as well for anyone. The spread of information has a cause for good and bad,and with the belief for young people to make a way for the future they are more active even if it's for a bad cause.

    Young people are political. How would they be political? When you think of politics, the main thing people think of is voting. Even though it may be one of the main things of politics, it's not the only thing. You can voice your opinion on social media or even go out and protest. Up to 52% of all young people believe we can influence how the world changes, by doing protests and talking on social media. Small acts like; just saying something on social media could change someone's view on something. Therefore, young people can be political without voting. As long as they have a say, voice, and word in what's going on, they most likely are political without even knowing it!

A lot of young people go on platforms and see other people, getting influenced to talk about how they feel. A lot of stuff going on in the world, and young politicians have their opinion on it. A lot of people are going through stuff and see how it affects the world and decide to become political themselves. This information supports my claim.

    Young people are definitely political. In our country, India students actively take part in politics. Young people have led numerous revolutions and mass movements in our country. I believe India's freedom would not have been possible without the active involvement of young people. Young people are adaptable to change. They have ideas and a free mind. Hence they obviously should involve themselves in politics. In democratic countries, a massive chunk of voters is young people. Young people are free thinkers. Although inexperienced, young people have fresh ideas and modern and rational thinking when. Hence young people are political.

Young people have a lot of disadvantages when it comes to political stuff. First of all you have to be 17 years old to vote meaning that all you can do if you are under this age is try to convince people to vote for the person that you would have voted for. Another reason why I think young people are not political is because they don't have as much experience as adults or old people do.

    I won't vote for one thing young people could be political and also can't
    "Young people as political"
    Young people are political not only in sense of choosing a leader ,discussing about country's afairs they are also political in school
    Like deciding for a new proctor all students vote and majority becomes the leader and there are also many other examples such as deciding a party or lunch everyone gives their opinion for votting
    If we talk about real politics mny young People could be political because majority youth when take part in politics their mindset is that this country is for us so "we should take part or decide that what should be better for our country" and they really do
    It totally depend on interest.
    " Young people not as political "
    And i also think that young people can't be political because in teenage majority don't have sense of humour they just take decisions in emotion and also are not interested in news like me just see news for timepassing or to see ads and majority youth use social media and are not interested in politics

  • tidy_situation | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 20 Nov 2022

    Young people are both political and non-political simultaneously. They are political because they keep an idea of the political sense of a certain party or personality. So, they vote for a party owing to their political taste.
    At the same time, they are non-political because they are not the rulers but are ruled once a regime comes into effect. Consequent to the results of an election they have to bear the brunt of the policies of the regime of the time.

International or global level in a big way, if you put a young man in an international rank as a minister or president to manage its economic affairs, you will find that the majority of them will fail, because he cannot rule an entire country and its people, either in a military situation or in a state of war, you find them asking about war, because this determines their fate And it threatens their lives. They feel fear and seek safety and luxury only, so you find them agitated in times of war. They attack, defend, or get angry and revolt. This is a natural reaction for all human beings. I do not have a specific answer to this question, and my words do not apply to all young people. You find some young people. They have creative ideas that they can change the world with. We have to put our hope on them, even if they are immature today, because they will save us tomorrow.

    Yes, because young people are the main supporters in building the walls of society and making it more advanced than before, simply because they are the strength we have for the present and the future.

    I think young people are not politically involved that much. You said they should participate politically but because of social media, I don't think they should.

    Yes I agree where you said young people represent a large proportion of society but their minds are being taken over by social media. media consumes them and that's what guides their votes so its like they do not have an opinion of their own. for example, Kanye West, a big celebrity who is problematic in his own ways decided to run for president and the younger generation made jokes about it and wanted to vote for him juts because of who he is. in fact, if Kanye did become resident, he would be no help to America since he is literally just a musician. he may be talented when it comes tomes to music but definitely not when it comes to being in charge of a country. I feel like a lot of young people do not care as much as they should

  • optimistic_wallaby | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 23 Nov 2022

    Yes, I agree that young people must be in political activities as they are well educated and they have the courage to bring some changes in the country. They are the driving force for the country. In country like Nepal young politician should do politics because our old politician mostly do corruption and they are not educated. Only in some old politician have vision but our political parties are disturbing them and they cannot perform well. Young leader are required as they don`'t do corruption, they have the vision for a better future of country . Politician buys the vote of people in money so good people cannot come forward.

    Young people are actually political. Young people of the 21st century love to challenge the world and challenge themselves, they speak fluently on development, technological and economical issues and they try their best to find a solution these problems. Young people are equipped with so many skills and programs that develops them into active and responsible politicians. An example of these programs are Global Conversation( it develops creativity, critical thinking, it teaches us how to analyse problems and proffer solutions), Junior Achievers(it educates young people on technology, skill development, economics and business, agriculture). All these programs train young people to be credible politicians.

  • aware_leaves | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 24 Nov 2022

    Young people are politicians, and I relied on that through:

    Young people at the age of 18-29 have political thinking, as we find them active in demonstrations and even on social networking sites, they talk about all rights, such as women's rights and children's rights, they talk about international laws and crises, they share their opinions, and they vote on such issues.
    The young group spreads the news and other young people receive it, and so the cycle continues until it reaches and covers vast areas, and thus they influence the world

  • excellent_lake | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 25 Nov 2022

    In my opinion yes , they are because young people are the basis of the future, as they are considered the only reason of promotion of our society .

  • accurate_wombat | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 25 Nov 2022

    Young people could be political, but we are not because we are not given the chance to be political, our views and opinions are not taken seriously because ''we lack experience '' give us a chance before we are condemned at least.

  • funny_lute | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 25 Nov 2022

    Young people’s relationship with politics is complex and problematized. They are seen both as the group who disengages politically, yet also at the forefront of major political movements.
    Young people are political, For instance here in my school, we elect prefects. During the period before the day of election, the candidates are to campaign and give out their manifestoes. There was a lot we were excited about especially to stand for as a young candidate for people to choose us to be their representatives. This is a way that taught us that we can be very competitive in the political aspect.

  • determined_globe | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    I personally think that young adults should have permission to vote as long as they were sensible ,because if they weren’t sensible it could completely ruin the country and if they purposely make horrible decisions it could completely ruin the country that they live in

  • clever_wasp | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    Are young people political?
    my answer for you is yes and no ,you might be thinking but there can only be one. But I think it depends who you are and your personality .For example I'm not political I'm in to my fashion .But some people believe we should be political because we are the hands of the future.
    So we now know it depends who you are.

  • reflective_journalist | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 26 Nov 2022

    I think youth are not political Youth including teens and teens are not political like most adults because young people usually watch on social media videos meant to make them laugh Most young people don't watch the news like adults do They don't read informative articles based on Politics as adults do I'm sure young people don't pay attention to government let's be honest even if young people see anything related to politics or anything related to government. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't care. Based on something I've read, it states, "36% of young Americans believe that being involved in politics rarely achieves anything, and that percentage has increased from previous years." Most young people don't care to get involved in anything political.

  • trusting_television | Rex Mill Middle STEM School D | United States of America 26 Nov 2022

    Are young people politicians?

    My answer is Yes, because young people could be thinking about it. They are the future and they could grow up to be an governor, Make laws, President, Etc.

  • imaginative_boysenberry | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 27 Nov 2022

    Why young people are political is to make a difference in the longer term, to engaged in formal political processes and have a say in formulating today’s and tomorrow’s politics. Inclusive political participation is not only a fundamental political and democratic right but also is crucial to building stable and peaceful societies and developing policies that respond to the specific needs of younger generations. To be adequately represented in political institutions, processes, and decision-making, and in particular in elections, they must know their rights and also be given the necessary knowledge and capacity to participate in a meaningful way at all levels.

  • inspirational_forest | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 28 Nov 2022

    Political engagement can be defined as when someone takes an interest in politics and partakes in them, examples are regular voting. the question is are young people political to me the answer is no, because a lot of youths are disengaging from democratic activities and are going into professional careers. According to reports 73% of youths who are eligible are restrained from running for political offices.This is part of the problem hindering political engagement for youths.

  • triumphant_mango | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 29 Nov 2022

    Yakubu Gowon, who at the age of 31 became the head of state and compare to the present leaders he really changed the country. We say the older the better but is that really true?

    I believe that everyone is political, but not everyone likes to share their views and opinions due to various reasons. This could be because young people sometimes struggle to stand out from others and prefer to 'fit in' with people who perhaps have different views. It could also be because they feel as though they do not have much of a say in the politics world, despite this changing as younger people's voices are beginning to be heard - such as Malala Yousafzai and Greta Thunberg who have inspired many across the world. Young people are political within their daily lives perhaps without even noticing, but they do not feel as though their opinions would have an impact upon these political situations/issues.
    On the other hand, especially in some areas of England, there are 'Youth MPs' who proudly speak out about what actions should be taken towards some issues, such as topics surrounding mental health, schools, the environment etc. With topics like these being spoken about by young people, it most likely creates an impact because they are all closely related to their daily lives and so they are able to share their personal experiences. Anecdotes are powerful when it comes to politics, while more famously, Malala Yousafzai shared the changes in her life after experiencing the impacts of the Taliban rules, but fortunately was still able to continue to live her life and inspire people by speaking out not only for herself but also for children who felt 'voiceless' about the lack of education that is received - for example in lower income countries such as Pakistan.
    Moreover, lots of young people unfortunately go through experiences in these stages of their lives where they feel as though their rights had been taken away or are not as prominent as adult's rights. This causes them to feel a lack of inclusion within the politics world and hence do not show and voice their views. This causes people to believe that young people are not political or are less political than adults.

    Are young people political?
    Yes, I believe that most young people are political in some way. Whether that means actually voting or just having an opinion on local matters. Every young person has an opinion and ideas as to what they want to see change in society, in a lot of cases however they feel their voice does not matter. In the last general election, there was seen a total of 47,587,254 votes, compared to 46,400,000 votes in 2o15 (an increase of around 1,100,000 votes). This is most likely due to an increase in the input from people aged 18-24 in politics. I think socially, young people are becoming more aware that their votes do matter, they can make a change. When young people think / know they have a voice they are more likely to use it. A lot of young people do get political material off of social media, unlike a majority of adults who get it off things like the news. In the Uk, '43% of those born between 1981-1996 get their news off of social media'. To me, this shows that political matters are becoming normalized to discuss between people thus, opening up the idea to many young people to get involved in politics. As time goes on, I believe that the number of young people voting (in events such as general elections) will continue to increase as younger generations realize how important their vote is and want to get involved. I strongly believe that in the next general election there will be even more of an increase in votes, especially from those aged 18-24.

  • cultured_watermelon | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 30 Nov 2022

    Are young people political?
    Yes, I believe young people are political; They are the next generation of our world, and therefore are highly aware of what comes next; Despite this, some may be less likely to vote or participate in political discussions. Firstly, this is a result of the lack of experience in politics. As a younger person, your first experience in politics may be daunting due to it being a new experience; this means that some may be less inclined to participate leading to a greater overall perception of the younger people being less political. Furthermore, this acts as a negative feedback loop as political areas are less populated with younger people. Additionally, there is a stigma surrounding younger people in politics; those with more experience and age may perceive themselves as more important and are less susceptible to change regarding politics. However, more and more younger people are engaging with politics, and it is having an effect upon society; social media platforms give the younger people more of a chance to engage in discussions.

  • reflective_journalist | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 30 Nov 2022

    Are young people political? From my point of view, I think it is possible... Who among us did not play a political role in the school when he was the class leader or the class secretary, or even a participant in resolving disagreements between friends, or even a problem with the school itself or with our brothers? All of this represents our political role as teenagers.... However, the question remains that experienced adults have more background due to their age and background. Advances in science and technology and revolution in communication, internet and social media have increased the interest and knowledge of politically educated youth in new policies. They are the most ambitious, have enthusiastic energy and curiosity, and are oriented towards self-affirmation. They are always critical and have the ability to change and advance. These are among the most important political advantages; Because politics is constantly changing. This change is difficult for Tories and Traditionalists to deal with....so it is easy for young people to deal with it.... Most of us know about Mary Black, the 20 year old British MP..... I expect young people to be the hope of the future.

    To my mind it seems to me that young people are quite political, whether of legal age (18+) and or minors (10+). Usually, minors have opinions due to all the commercials and marketing that is often meant to be advertised to older audiences. During elections, I customarily overhear conversations about commercials, often in structures like: "Who would you vote for?" "(Insert person) or (Insert person)?" ect. I do not partake in these conversations because I am not as political, but I have heard many. I personally cannot say much about how these conversations play out. Legals, the audience that these campaigns are targeting with these commercials do also take an effect on them too. Their personal opinions and views change after viewing these ads sometimes, and they discuss a lot about it. So yes, young people are very political as of now.

  • happy_volcano | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    My answer for the question: Are young people political?
    Yes. I have had experiences in the past with a member government's child. We were discussing the abortion crisis in America and they had some valid logic. I have also seen many people protest about this and they are very good at discussing politics and why this world is twisted and how we could fix it to be beneficial. Thank you for reading my comment have a good lesson

  • trustworthy_guitar | Maritime Academy | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    Firstly, young people have different perspectives and a host of different ideas. By allowing them to voice their opinion we could be opening and moving the political world forward. This is not only good for society, but necessary for society. If the young did not engage with politics, even if it is through pressure groups, there would be many issues with our political establishments in trying to keep policy fair and sustainable for future generations. For example, equal rights for women required many young women to engage with the issue at hand. Why? Because they had strong feelings for the issue at hand, and that is something that countries should work to increase--interest and opinion on political matters.

  • committed_tsunami | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Dec 2022

    Are young people political?
    At the age of 18-29 some young people go to university and are politicians.
    Of course they are politicians, young people in the youth stage have wonderful thinking and high-quality thinking, and they are also the strength and hope of the future
    I do not mean that all young people are political because personally I am not really political, but I say yes because I study with political people, and this is because of their personal experience with this world.I mean, when you just interact with them, you can really see your future leader, not only in their words but in their advice as well, when they advise you or anyone else, you really see a future leader who's going to solve global problems. Young people spread the news to other young people and the cycle continues with more young people becoming political and getting more and more extra political work.
    Therefore, I believe that young people are politicians, as this is the most important stage in their lives, as they choose their lives and their future at this stage

  • educated_ocean | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Dec 2022

    Yes, young people are political. I believe that young people are political because in many countries just like mine young people literally participate in politics for example at school or in colleges when they are choosing leaders and also I believe that a person of 18 and above or any applicable age in a country is political as long as they have the requirements just like they can get involved in stricts or riots or give their opinions via social media.

  • fulfilled_planet | Rex Mill Middle STEM School E | United States of America 05 Dec 2022

    I feel like young people should vote when they react the age of 18,if young people don't vote less people will come up to vote.

  • empathetic_guitar | Garden High School | India 06 Dec 2022

    Are young people political ?
    The answer would be yes . Politics at the end of the day runs a country , people express their opinion , the majority party makes bills and amendments and implements them on the common masses while the opposition finds flaws in the administration and brings them to light and even mentions how they can change that. In this young people do play a part ,a very important one . They are the lighthouses which will guide their country to a better future and for that they should know who rules their country , how well does he or she runs the country and do their method fit in the child's perspective.

  • patient_meaning | Pointe South Middle School R | United States of America 08 Dec 2022

    Young people can be political because you have to be 18 in the US to vote and according to www.federalregister.gov and circle.tufts.edu in 2021 and in 2022 out of 258,327,312 people. Only 27 percent of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 voted for the 2022 midterms which is 69,748,374 of the population that voted in the midterms and since that many young people voted then young people are political.
