Talkin' 'Bout a New Generation
Anita Sharpe on Culture

Between the Iraq war and the environment, a social shift that looks a lot like the 1960s' youth movement seems to be gaining a lot of momentum. If it's anything like what happened 40 years ago, look out for big quakes in just about everything: music, movies, politics, religion. . .

'Major social changes start with a shift in philosophy, and then a new generation is born with that at their core,' 24-year-old Josh Tulkin tells the New York Times in a story today about young environmental activists. 'That generation is us.'

I work directly with young people and totally agree - this is a generation who are media-literate and worldly/politically-savvy...

...the best bit is they love to be engaged and to participate (don't we all) - they just need the right medium.

The 'social change' which the above quote refers to is one which has been enabled through recent technological developments which, for young people, have now become ubiquitous.

Bring on the 'quakes'... :-)
