According to a survey done by New Paradigm, “56% of the world’s online youth would prefer to make the world a better place than to improve their local community.”
As much as I do think making the world a better place is a worthwhile cause, I think this also reflects how youths tend to look out a lot. We look out to the world at large, but don’t see the problems in our own backyard. We need to pay proper attention to our local community. It’s easier, and more effective. And if everyone focuses on improving their local community, wouldn’t the world automatically become a better place?
