Global youth revolutions are changing our traditions. To learn how the Millennial Generation is shaping our future, Dr. Kimball generated a worldwide network of youth informants and traveled to 21 countries on all the inhabited continents to talk with them. Her dialogues ranged from Tahrir Square in Cairo, to Rio slums, to villages in Tanzania and Indonesia, to posh London and Shanghai homes. A Brighter Future draws on almost 3,500 written responses from 65 countries. The actual voices of youth make for interesting and thought provoking reading.
