The Future is Young

The world has talents: it is a time to offer them an ambition

Amid this fast and disorienting pace of change, many are instinctively looking to political leaders and world-renowned experts for answers. As a result, important conversations that should be going on have been conspicuous by their absence. In particular, these are conversations that should involve young people. If new paradigms are emerging that will one day govern how we live, work, learn and communicate, it is the youth that needs to be in the driver’s seat of shaping them. The new generation needs to ensure that these paradigms reflect its values and priorities, as well as its outlook on the world and how it perceives its own place in the world. Young people have boundless energy, but they often lack inspiration and hope. This book is about supporting young
minds’ probing efforts with creative vision, energy and ambition.
