It is no secret that we live in a highly consumer-driven world. The controversial phenomenon has reached incredible heights, so much to the point that not even the earliest and most passionate capitalism advocates could have imagined. While many criticize the current state of society and show apprehension at its brainwashed state, a more optimistic approach would be to turn the tables and change this to a positive thing. What better way to change the way things are than by investin...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

“Why is it important for children & youth to have a voice in business”. This question sounds really rare and successfully makes me think deeply about the answer. When I was thinking about “Business”, the situation that to my mind is; a young man, bringing lots of water-color and the brushes for painting. He is going to the garden with so many children waiting for him. In the middle of their activities, the young man’s phone is ringing and the man says “Alright,...

As we know, the perpetual aggression attacks Palestine because of the notorious willing of Israel to occupy Palestine land. As the result, the conflict between both Palestinian and Israeli people has not found a resolution although the United Nations have mediated it. As a result, long aggression appears as violence not only for other Middle Eastern countries, but also for children and youth around the conflict area. A study shows Palestinian and Israeli children act more violent...

The world population today is about 7.1 billion people, nearly 40 % of this population are under the age of 24,so mathematically about 3 billion of the world’s population are youth and children : isn’t that a sufficient number to give youth a voice in business ? Shouldn’t they be a part of this vital sector ?.… In my article I’ll try to explain the reasons why -I think- youth should have a voice in business, and why youth and children’s needs and rights should be the ma...

According to the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789) and most nations, we are all citizens. Nevertheless, many human communities have been suffering the effect of a phenomenon called “statelessness”. The statelessness is little-known in everyday life by many of us, who live in developed countries, but in five continents this injustice occurs. The statelessness means that a person does not have any nationality, he/she does not belong to any country leg...

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up” - Pablo Picasso This is the main reason why it is very important to have children and youth voices in business. It is unusual to have a society paying so much attention to what kids have to say; when in fact they usually bring in perspectives that were not taken into consideration. This neglect that children and youth receive is as Pablo Picasso have said the main reason why they grow...

Businesses have an extensive role to play in the development of children and youth globally. If both major corporations and small & medium enterprises decided to dedicate their social responsibility programs on advocating children's rights, the results and the impact would be immense. Currently, there are 57 million children who are out of school and need access to quality education. Businesses and corporations can bring education to this huge number of devastated children by c...

"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.” -Nelson Mandela In today’s material-driven society, it is obvious that children are often directly targeted by companies who view them as consumers. One out of three people today are under the age of 18, making this group a highly valuable market for many corporations. However, children are also indirectly influenced by the decisions of global business. There are a myria...
