It is no longer surprising that action in one country can have unprecedented impact on another part of the world. Events like global warming will have serious consequences for us all, and yet the power to act is mainly in the hands of huge multinational organizations and governments, as they are the one doing the big decisions. Not to mention participation requires certain knowledge and usually to engage politically you must pass a certain age threshold to participate in politics. It is no wonder that youth might feel powerless and unable to participate in tackling important issues.
