Happening Things

Newsy this's and that's

Young Minds Section has started a new venture

We’re now working with a new international youth group, Article-2 Youth for a Change, young writers and activists making a difference in their worlds.

For some reason it’s become almost conventional wisdom that “young people are apathetic about the world around them’. I’ve not at all found this to be true… sure there are some who are more interested in music and the latest fashions than they are in world hunger, but there are also plenty of teenagers, and even pre-teens, who have a good grasp of what is going on in society, and how they can be effective in bringing about change.

This is just one group of them. Hopefully more will be joining as time goes by. We’ll be bringing you more stories of young people who are making a difference in their communities, and in the world at large. You can also submit your own, we welcome community input.

Go here to the Young Minds main page to read the current articles.

Also, in case some haven’t noticed yet, we do have a place to comment on any of the articles. There is no need to register, but you will need to supply an email address.
