Millennial Manifesto

1. Abdullahi Alim (World Economic Forum), 2. Parvathi Santhosh-Kumar (Strive Together), 3. Tariq Al-Olaimy (3BL Associates), 4. Andres Felipe Vera Ramirez (Acumen)

Today’s youth movements enjoy mass popularity, but how effective are they? Greta Thunberg proclaimed that “pretty much nothing [had] been done” since staging school strikes to raise awareness of the climate crisis in 2018, while Micah White, co-creator of Occupy Wall Street, has said that social change as we know it is dead.

Join this intergenerational discussion on how to mature youth activism for a world marked by greater examples of systemic faults and to ultimately contribute to the development of a Millennial Manifesto for the post-covid world.
