With 20 percent of the population in the global south and 12.6 per cent of the population in ‘developed’ nations aged 15 to 24, young people are a force that can’t be ignored.

Jody McIntyre, 22 year old activist and journalist, has guest edited October’s New Internationalist celebrating global youth movements. In this podcast he discusses the role of social media, what movements can learn from the Chilean students and why he won’t be giving up on activism.
