For all those who equate young people and the Me-Generation, with limited interests, take a look at Voices of 21.
It’s a project by students of the University of Pittsburgh, and it’s named for a god reason -to add a 21st ‘voice’ to the 20 global voices at G-20 summit going on in their neck of the woods. It’s goal is
to inspire a more inclusive and constructive dialogue on global economic stability that will resonate with the Pittsburgh community and beyond.
This analysys of the protests, for instance is enlightening. A rather long post, it is written by fourth-year student majoring in Law and Global Political Economy, Eli Baumwell. I don’t mind the length, and will probably use it as an example of those who complain that wonder if this generation is all about short form content and Facebook-y status updates!
