The post-millennial generation is uniquely well qualified to make a good future for themselves and all of us. However, it is also clear that they will do so only if we create the right environment for them.
If post-millennials are to benefit from the explosion of innovation & opportunity that our age is seeing, we need to recognise that the age of adolescence and emerging adulthood needs deliberate attention.This attention needs to come from society as a whole, not just from government. To affect a generation positively, everyone—family, civil society, schools, government and businesses—needs to be committed if we are to make a real difference.
