A New Global Politics - New York Event

A New Global Politics
Harvard Club NY: 35 W 44th St, New York

More than half the world's population is under the age of 30, and these young people are increasingly wired together with new technologies-mobile phones, social media, satellite television-creating an unprecedented global community among the generation that will determine the direction of the world in the 21st century. In recent weeks, we have watched tech-savvy youth lead protests throughout the Middle East and North Africa, seeking the open, democratic future they've been able to see and imagine as globally connected citizens. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., we are engaging in a debate about our country's future using new tools and technologies, crafting fresh ideas and solutions to address the evolving challenges we face as a nation.

On Tuesday, March 1st, NDN and the New Policy Institute hosted a breakfast discussion about this new global politics and the changing technologies and demographics that are making it possible. Joining NDN President Simon Rosenberg was Jose Antonio Vargas, Senior Contributing Editor to the Huffington Post, and one of America's leading experts on the "anthropology" of the internet age, and Oscar Salazar, an internet entrepreneur and activist, whose company CitiVox works to improve the democracy and civil society of his home country of Mexico.
