1.Where does the power of young people lie nowadays?
Young people seem to be more capable than ever before today. Why do you think that is? Where does their power lie?
The power of young people nowadays lies in empowerment and capacity building through academic education, training to acquire general and specific skills, knowledge and competencies. Young people of today have taken advantage of the emergence and existence of the contemporary phenomena of Information and Communication Technology (ICT)/Information Technology (IT) and the internet to improve themselves academically, professionally and personally to improve and enhance their personal honour and professional integrity who have the capacity to solve problems, difficulties and challenges confronting their immediate communities, country and the global community.
In a nutshell, the power of young people nowadays lies in empowering themselves and building their capacity through academic education, professional development, acquiring relevant knowledge, kills and competencies in ICT/IT, the internet (which is quite useful in undertaking e-learning/online courses) among several relevant areas of human endeavours.
