Technologies become weapons to combat social change In the years since Tahrir square, distinctly millennial youth protest movements have risen up around the world. Armed with powerful mobile and social-media technologies, youth protesters now have visibility across borders and have shared cultural and political experiences. Nationality matters less and ideas and people matter more. But as the tools necessary to drive disruptive political and social change become less expensive and easier to use, they have equally become weapons to combat social change. Technologies that enable rapid-fire collective action, global media amplification and direct community engagement are available anywhere, any time, and to anyone—good or bad. In the midst of a new wave of global youth protests and seismic political change, Fusion presents an interactive dialogue with change-minded millennials about the challenges and opportunities ahead—and connects ideas to action.
