THE REVOLUTION GENERATION is a multi-faceted project that explores the crisis, awakening, and empowerment of the largest youth generation in history. Today half of the people on planet Earth are under the age of 35 - this is more people than were alive in 1950. Theirs is the most connected, educated and technologically savvy generation ever. Yet the hardships they face threaten to culminate in a perfect storm of economic, humanitarian, environmental and political crisis.
This Book, Film, and College Tour Lecture Series, under the same title, explore the sweeping demographic changes that lead to the world that young people are inheriting and – through following a new breed of global citizens who have committed themselves to world change in companies, communities, and countries – paints a picture of how this generation is awakening to change the world for the better. The basis for the word “revolution” is the Latin word “revolutio,” which means “to turn around.” It is our mission to show a young audience how to “turn their world around” for good.
