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. The series began by them talking about the issues they care about, starting with the existential question of ‘When are we old enough‘!

After successfully having convinced the older generation in the first episode that they are indeed old enough, in this episode of ‘Young Adults’, five youth activists take over the stage to discuss what they know best; youth in activism. The panel comprises young adults who have, and are devoting their youth to politics, education, the student community, equality and women’s rights, among other fields. But can young adults who in some cases are barely past, if not below the legal age, make real change? Are their young voices taken seriously, or even heard? Do we have enough young adults taking up social causes or do we need to get more, and how? What motivates them to spend their otherwise carefree youth to take up such serious issues? A lack of trust in the older generation probably?
Well, the list can go on. Tune in to this episode of BIC Young Adults to hear what the next generation has to say about their role, reasons, opinions, thoughts, stories and experiences in youth activism!
