Millennials have been condemned to a life of permanent adolescence. Despite the obsession with all things shiny and new, The New Internationalist magazine argues that young people are using old-fashioned ideas to chart a way forward.
Yohann Koshy - editor of this issue - writes:
"Speaking to and reading about under-employed and resourceful young people, from graduates in the Democratic Republic of Congo to migrants in Naples, I saw the outlines of an exhausted generation who want nothing more than to grow up.
"The stereotype of millennials as work-shy and mollycoddled faded under scrutiny. As I hope this collection of stories demonstrates, they are a cohort who work ceaselessly: both to survive and, crucially, to create the conditions for a better future."

New Internationalist magazine is a fantastic, informative "tell it like it really is" read and gives me an insight into what is actually going on on this poor battered planet we temporarily inhabit.
