This is a new series of conversations by the youth on the BIC platform. It is conceived, planned and executed by 17-22 year old young adults. In this series, they will talk about the issues they care about starting with the existential question of ‘When are we old enough‘!. Some future episodes in the works include ‘There is a bit of Greta in us all‘ on youth activism and ‘Screen time is not necessarily bad‘ for the digital native generation.

In this episode of a newly created ‘Young Adults’ series, five teens use a public platform to voice their opinions. “Breaking free” aims to stir a debate regarding issues pertinent to the age – privacy, safety, freedom to name a few. Why should parents allow their children to enjoy uninhibited privacy? Should parents be allowed to go through their child’s phone? Locked doors? Consumption of alcohol? Dating in your teens? Wait until you earn your money? Tune into this exciting, young and refreshing talk in which 5 teens – the oldest being 19, and the youngest, 17, talk about themselves and their thoughts in a bid to make the older generation understand the often misunderstood, or at least, provide a different point of view.
