Who says young people aren't paying attention? This year's Roosevelt Institute | Campus Network Senior Fellows have ideas that aim to solve issues from boosting economies in developing countries, finding new thinking in the Arab world, and ending the school-to-prison pipeline. They may still be in school, but their ideas could reach every corner of the country -- and even the globe. Watch them talk about their inspiring projects:
Whoever thinks that young people are only good for knocking doors and showing up on election day hasn't spoken to these students. Ahmad wants to "think about things in a new way" after the Arab Spring. David plans to "engage a whole new group of students in policy activism" through new approaches to global warming. May wants to "give [students] the power to talk to administrations, draft things out, look at budgets and be like, 'Wow, this really isn't effective.'" And Rajiv wants to "make sense of the byzantine way in which [health care] policy is created."
You won't find apathy here. Stay tuned for an upcoming series on all of the ideas proposed by Campus Network students for the annual 10 Ideas publication.
