Our arguements will be about;
how children aren't taken seriously
how children aren't allowed to participate in various things
how we need supervision to drive
how adults see children as peiople who mess things up
My name is Rian Rogers and i am arguing about the extreme actions towards young people in ireland today. Take driving for example. Drivers are not allowed to drive on the road unless they have a licence/learner permit. You cannot have a full licence until you are eighteen, but even then you need a full licence driver beside you for the first two years. This can have a huge effect on people you want to go to college or graduate at sixteen.
my argument is that young people are taken seriously, which will be made evident by the fact that young people are more involved in politics than ever before.
I am opposing this motion because:
A Young girl, Malala Yousafzai, who is only 18 at present, won the Nobel peace prize in 2014.
She was awarded this because of her bravery as she stood up and became a female activist for education for girls, and was shot by the Taliban because of this.
She was the youngest winner ever.
She was shot when she was just 15.
This is a tremendous achievement, is it not?
It is amazing, astonishing and awe inspiring.
Also, every school you see there are extensions being built, and this shows that the adults respect us, because they wouldn't bother building these to help us academically.
Also, Organisations such as CTYI, Center of Talented Youth Ireland, recognize every child's contribution whether its in school, at home or anywhere, and they help children hone heir skills, so they can become great people in the future.
Also the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland, I s a youth orchestra, which has been announced to start the 2016 millenium commemoration festival. it has been recognized by the minister for art and music, Heather Humphry's, and she now patrons us. The orchestra has been around the world, the royal albert hall in london,China, and Carnegie Hall, where they had standing innovations every time they ended their concerts.
Which shows that they are defiantly appreciated, and taken seriously.
This week's motion is young people in ireland are not taken seriously.
I am the proposition.
My argument is that young people's opinions are not taken seriously. This is also seen in the household,as parents try to protect children but, actually cocooning them from the real world.
