Tomorrow’s Leaders

In the Media: Progress Leader, 26 March 2019, page 3

Chances are, when you think of my generation, you think of social media and modern technology gone wild.

However, it seems to me that this popularised perception of us, albeit somewhat true, serves to portray us all as lazy and selfobsessed.

What, therefore, is ignored is the simple fact that the internet and the modern technology we were all raised on is the defining factor that will allow our generation to make a difference. The internet, when used correctly, opens up a world of knowledge to everyone who can freely use it.

Never before have we been this exposed to international issues and, importantly, been able to access and understand different perspectives and stories from around the world.

Sure, there are plenty of negatives to the internet and social media, and admittedly there is still a lot to be said for real-world, life experiences that occur outside of our screens.

However, when considering what difference our generation can make to the world, our universal ability to access issues and perspectives, and our already apparent desire to make positive change in a world riddled with crises seem to me to be the most obvious examples of the kind of change we are going to make.
