Abstract

This essay examines the relationship between peer pressure, the digital age, and new populism, focusing on the challenges faced by youthful individuals. Social media amplify peer pressure and reckless behavior. Youth are attracted to the new populism by its promises of change and defiance. Providing adolescents with the ability to think critically is essential for navigating information – inclusion-promoting environments to combat polarization. Youth participation in politics generates positive change. Collaboration enables youth to confront obstacles, fostering an informed and equitable society.

Keywords: Peer Pressure, Digital Age, New Populism, Youth Challenges, Social Media, Critical Thinking, Polarization, Youth Participation
