“[Social media is] a means for politically engaged youth to connect and become a force for democracy”
Social media also builds bridges between youngsters all across the globe. Consider the power of innovation that is unleashed when youth from parts of the world as far apart as the EU and India are able to connect through social media to combine their respective talents, experiences and backgrounds to join forces in finding the answers to tomorrow’s challenges. That is why we need to make sure young people everywhere are equipped with the resources and abilities that allow them to take part in these global exchanges.
