The Young And The Restless – In An Age of Global Transition

Laura Neitzel, PhD, Academic Director, The Committee on Global Thought, Columbia University

What does it mean to be ‘young’ today? Approximately a quarter of humanity – almost 2 billion people are between the ages of 15 and 29. And the vast majority are from the developing world. Today’s young become adults as the world confronts fundamental changes in the geo-political order, in the nature and future of work, and in the ways we connect with each other, engage politically, and define identity.

Dr Laura Neitzel will discuss the historical emergence of the concept of “youth”. How has ‘being young’ changed in our culture and others? Is youth prolonged, or abbreviated, by a rapidly changing world? She will consider the unique challenges and opportunities our current age of globalization has created for youth in both developed and developing nations, and what this means to us all, regardless of age.
