Young People: Cross-cultural views and futures is designed to highlight student voices from multiple perspectives and diverse socio-cultural contexts. Young people have lived all their lives with personal connectivity. Their mobile digital devices provide a steady stream of information anytime and anyplace. The result is that young people today offer a unique perspective on global issues. Students in Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Chile, Colombia, the United States, Kenya, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Finland reveal overlapping interests related to the future of our planet including: the environment, health and wellbeing, their families, education, and jobs.
