    I REALLY need help on this piece of persuasive writing. The question is why teenagers should care about changing the world? And you also need to include things like why we should care and what we need to change. Btw this is a speech and you need to include things like racism stereotypes ect.
    I would be SO happy if you could list reasons why we should care to change the world.

    i could start you off by saying that teens should care about changing the world because in the future we're the ones living in it and helping to run society and make things work

    Teenagers are in escence, the future of the world. If they have no say over the changes that occur now, then they have no control over their future and what will happen to the way they live.
    Not just that, but to be blunt, teens are the ones who will pick up the pieces and carry on from where ever it was left off. It doesn't matter to those currently making the decisions as they wont be here.

    You should care because one day you'll be an independent adult having to survive and function in the world you can either help or ignore.

    You could set up a counter-argument saying that some teens, particularly high achievers from privileged, well-educated and well-connected backgrounds, have little incentive to change the world, as they are the ones benefiting the most from the status quo.

    Also, I imagine that you could point out in your introduction that change can definitely be regressive (in the liberal sense), as seen with young people advocating fairly conservative policies such as restricting immigration, increasing digital surveillance of the public, reducing benefit payments to the poor, implementing restrictions on refugee numbers, supporting military intervention abroad, etc. Not all change is necessarily towards the better, as change =/= 'progress'

    They should not. They have no experience, and even if they could change it who is to say they would change it for the better? They rarely do, they just push the same socialist dogma.

    There's not that much to simplify to.
    Basically, if the current system is benefiting you and your family, then you have little incentive to change it (think of the students at Eton or something)

    The distinction I made was fairly simple - you could clarify in your intro or conclusion that change is not the same as progress. Change can be measured fairly objectively by looking at how something has been altered over time. "Progress" is a loaded term that implies that the direction or trend in something (our society in this case) is desirable.

    For example, an increase in welfare spending and benefits as decreed by legislation is a definite change. Whether you think it's "progress" depends on whether you think that the end goal (more support for the poor*, greater state intervention, higher government spending) is a good thing or a bad thing.
