The younger generations have a lot to lose. The earth that is being built will be theirs to inherit. They want to build a future containing a healthy world to one day pass on to their own children.
Unfortunately, the youth of today are often written off and ignored. While many want to be involved, they are not actively engaged by leaders, and therefore feel unimportant. Skyler, being of a younger generation, can identify with the issues facing youth today, and work to rectify them. With this advantage, he can build a better and brighter future for all members of our society.
