International Youth Day 12th August – Powered By Resilient Change Agents

 

In today's world, our youth – the youth – you, are increasingly being bombarded with pro-drug and alcohol affirming messages; messages that foster self-harming, not self-actualizing behaviours and attitudes. Not only is ‘push’ being driven in the market-place, the ‘ganging up’ continues in the political arena with some punters promoting legislating the chaos of easier access to this ‘junk’ – toxins that will mess up anyone with a developing brain – anyone – that’s from around 12 years old, up to the age of 30.

These issues arise, not only through legislation but more so through cleverly spun peer pressure processes, through a constant stream of advertising across all modes of communication. It is as deceptive as it is harmful. What is most disturbing is these players don’t ‘give a rip about you or your future.  Substance use will add no value to Gen Now, but worse will take from our up-and-coming generations of leaders, entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and world changers. 

Alcohol and Other Drug abuse is a dysfunction, disorder and a mental and physical disease creating vehicle that the emerging Gen Now need to be protected from, not promoted to. 

When the next generation of world changers know they have not only the power to say NO to harmful substances and attitudes, but better enabled to exercise it, then they are better change agents for a culture of health and well-being.

We see this when we also say no to:

  • NO to violence against women and children
  • NO to Bullying and abuse
  • NO to an ‘acceptable’ death and permanent disabilities from drug and alcohol car accidents
  • NO to Crime
  • No to Environmental damages
  • NO to things that harm, hurt, diminish and/or take from our children, families, and communities.
  • Why say NO, because there is a correlation between drug and alcohol abuse that damages everything in its wake. 

The collective power of our youth, the next generation of resilient world changers who say NO with a strong and clear voice, will be much better equipped and empowered to say ‘YES’ to progress best-practice health and well-being which goes a long way toward making a better world – a world better than the one they inherited…

Drug use has no place in that outcome. 

It is time #GenNow invests in their future – it is time for #DemandReduction. It is time to #preventdontpromote #drug use on this #InternationalYouthDay
