Today, being not only a global citizen, but also a student, I realise that I have a moral responsibility towards the environment
From a very young age, I have been hearing phrases such as “Go Green” and “Save the Environment”. Little did I know that I would grow up to be one of those teenagers that can’t stand a small plastic bag being disposed in the trash bin when there is an option of using a recycle bin.
Almost every country in the world has issued its own set of environmental laws. According to me, that notion is the starting point of ridding this Earth of environmental disasters. Laws are important because they keep the society intact. More often than not, laws are the only weapons capable of controlling the activities of modern age. Environmental laws are no different from other laws that have been in place for centuries.
However, I firmly believe that without environmental awareness and a sense of responsibility towards the environment, these laws will not serve their purpose. Along with laws, the governments are also supporting various kinds of campaigns held by people of all ages.
Today, being not only a global citizen, but also a student, I realise that I have a moral responsibility towards the environment. It is the youth of today that is going to bear the consequences of the actions of today. It is our duty to ensure that our actions only do well to the environment and do not cause any more harm than what is already done. As the young generation, our voice matters. Our words are starting to matter.
With the UAE government continuously being supportive, students are now working together as one team towards a common goal. For example, two years ago, I established a volunteer group named ‘Miracle Dynamos’. This student group works towards making the world a more environment friendly place to live in.
The youth of today is the future of tomorrow. We owe so much to this planet after all the opportunities and education that we have been provided with. The least we can do is to ensure that mankind nurtures mother Earth forever. To me and probably to the youth across the world, this is just the beginning of us taking over environmentally.

Every society is made by people of different classes, values and ages, and everyone has to play an important, essential and crucial role in the society of today and of future. And it is the duty of every member of society to participate to strengthen the society.And every society is like a bouquet of flowers where each flower participate to make the bouquet wonderful, and each flower has a different color, smell and size but all together make the bouquet more brighter, attractive and beautiful.
Young people are part of the bouquet of a society, but their role is more important than others. They are integral and essential part of a society and a society is incomplete without young blood. Therefore it is said: “Today’s youths are the force, hope and leaders of tomorrow”, because they are the future of society, country and community. Young people are the driving force of change and can encourage governments to declare their priorities. Young people have important responsibilities towards their country. It is important to learn from the past and to live with a hope for a better future, a future that is appropriate for our children and future generations.
The future generation has a duty to be honest, genuine, of good values and to work day and night for the betterment of the society and the country. Young people have a duty to use their skills, strength, creativity and imaginations to serve the country and the nation in the best possible manner. These are the young people who can make the difference, because they are the backbone of a nation and can build a bright future for society based on values and courageous behavior.
Young people should focus on their studies, because education is the best tool to success and for the future of our country. They should devote sufficient time to their studies. Physical education and sport is also important, and young people should play regularly, as health is also important for the progress. If our youths will be healthy, they can do more work for the country.
The time is precious and its wastage is a great loss for the future, therefore, young people must do everything to use their precious time wisely. Often we see young people wasting their time unnecessarily; they go out for long time unnecessarily, this is not good because every moment of their lives is important. Therefore, I can say that today’s youth are the only hope of tomorrow, and have a duty to understand their importance and work according to the need of the time.
Our youths are not less than the youths of other countries and are very capable and have various opportunities. They have the skill, behaviour, attitude, health, knowledge and ability to make the future of the country very shining.
I believe that the life and success of nations and their bright future lies in the hands of the youth generation of today. And if young people of today have strong values, the best education, good health, right priorities and full sincerity, then we can say that the future is bright. And if, unfortunately, today’s youths have not prepare themselves enough, then we cannot say that the future will be brighter than today. Because, strong building always has a strong foundation.
