Young people – the most important strategic resource for development in the twenty-first century – are rapidly changing the face of the modern world: they are developing and implementing social and economic innovations, while making scientific discoveries and technological breakthroughs. It is young people who will replace the older generation and create the roadmaps for development scenarios for the country, civilization and the planet as we move into the future. And in many respects the successful implementation of these development scenarios depends on how members of the younger generation envisage the future – with optimism or pessimism – and on how long and to what extent they can hold onto this vision.
