Members of society can be anyone from retired people to the local police officer, a grandparent, a child, a priest, a taxi driver, a doctor or the president. We all live in a society; therefore we are all members of society. We pass on everything we know from one generation to the next and this is everything in our culture. Every generation adopts the same culture that is passed onto them by their parents and everyone in society. This new generation will then adapt and change the culture slightly until it is significantly changed after generations and generations of modification.

Language changes slightly with every generation as new slang words and pronunciations are introduced into the language until they stop being ‘slang’ and eventually become an established part of the language. Our values and beliefs slowly change and can be influenced by a variety of factors. Our increases in scientific knowledge through discoveries and research have introduced us to evolution which has altered many people’s religious beliefs. Our awareness of the planet has encouraged more people to be environmentally friendly by recycling and reducing waste or even growing some of their own produce.

Norms change as our society changes and also with technological advancements. The majority of households in the Western world now have access to the internet which has changed our lives forever as we make purchases online and the majority of businesses could no longer function without the internet. The children being raised in society today are even more dependent upon technology and chances are, their children will be more so again.

Society is a never ending evolving and adapting movement that is influenced by a huge variety of factors. We do not know which direction it will move in next, but we do know that we will always pass our culture onto future generations.
