【话题提示】

1. capability: skill and knowledge on computer science

2. concern: focus on community and social activities 

Sample answer


    With the coming of the new millennium, with the booming of internet, with the acceleration of globalization, people have realized that this era varies radically. What’s the difference between young people in this era and young people in the past? Comparing to the last generation, young people today have more chances and resources, which, in turn, arouses their concerns to the society. So there will be more possibilities that contemporary generation contribute more time and labor to the improvement of the world.

    First, let’s consider on capability. It’s obvious that young people today develop more skills on computer and internet. Internet has become their first choice for solving problems or promoting interesting events. They spend a lot of time surfing websites and logging in social nets, and the world is unconsciously changed in this way. Internationalization is a good example, in which, people, especially in metropolis all over the world, know the same hot events, talk the same topics, focus on the same concerns and accept the same opinions. Some people may have a debate on consequences coming with internationalization, but most people admit that civilization is improving globally. All these changes should be contributed to people who expose news, advocate ideas and exchange opinions on internet. It’s just because of their time that our world is improving.

Second, thanks to the development of media and advancement of education. Young people today learn more about social problems and concern more about humanities. A new invention of middle school students is a device to decrease discharge of exhausted gas from automobiles; a graduate from medical school becomes a Medicins Sans Frontieres to help the poor in poverty-stricken and trouble-occurring regions; young people volunteer to accompany the “empty-nest” elders in the neighborhood. These youth are making efforts to help the world. And I think, there will be more and more young people eager to do the same devotion.

    The 21st century is a completely new millennium, emerging with booming of internet and high technology. Our world will become a global home more than ever before. Young people living in this era, no matter they are on initiative or with unconsciousness, are spending time and efforts to change the world.
