I am impressed by your post, because its very informative and had many good resources. I think it shows how invested you are in this topic. I do agree with you that this topic is important, and everyone needs to focus in on this to hep. Only error seemed to be three extra paragraphs.
Hi Matthew, This article is fantastic, It’s well written and clearly shows how passionate you are about this topic. Bringing awareness to a problem has never been the final solution people need to realize that kids raising awareness is not us trying to solve global warming but us trying to wake adults up to the issue.
Hi Theo, I really enjoyed this article. I see every day walking around Berkeley that this problem is massive but I didn’t know any of these numbers. I liked that you acknowledged that bringing awareness is not enough anymore, people are acting as if there helping but then stepping back when anything actually needs to be done.
I’ve chosen to study the Australian brush fires, and global warming. Global warming is going to affect me for the rest of my life, so I’d like to know as much as I can about how I can help. Fires have been bur
Thank you so much for writing this post. I agree, these wildfires have been a consistent problem in Australia that needs immediate action. The wildfires are a direct effect of global warming which has become an international problem that needs the participation of everyone. Global warming is an issue that affects so many things on Earth: from humans, to plants, animals and the environment. It is crucial that everyone does their part to create sustainable lifestyles that emit less waste. I am glad that you are engaging in further research on this matter and I’m looking forward to seeing your other findings.
I fully agree with this, I think adults have gotten lazy or given up. They always say that it’s up to us since it’s going to be our world. The truth is though that we weren’t the ones that screwed it up so adults should take responsibility and do something so we aren’t left with a world that we can’t help.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
