What is the YouthVoice on the Paris Attacks?

Whippersnapper asks: How do young people respond to the Paris Attacks?


The November Paris Attacks shocked the Western world. The global response was one of rebuke and dismay as countries stood in solidarity with france against IS.

It has lead to increased military action from France, and newer involvement from Germany and Britain in the form of airstrikes.

Across the world, young people are growing up in an increasingly insecure world. So what do young people think about the Paris Attacks? Politicians may have responded with military action against IS in Syria and Iraq, but how do we feel about what’s going on in the world?

Whippersnapper asked a group from an National Citizen Service (NCS) Youth Board to express their views.
