The Importance of Being Young

The Importance of Being Young

One of the main themes we will be exploring for the next couple of weeks on Connect the World Live From is how the "future generation" of Emiratis, Egyptian, Lebanese and Turks feel about the events unfolding across the region and inside their own country. In order to do that I'm going to sit down with recent graduates in Abu Dhabi, Cairo, Beirut and Istanbul to listen to their opinions, their hopes and what their worries.

It's clear to me that many of the countries we are going to bring you special programming out of this Ramadan have very vibrant youth. They are educated and they know what they want and aren't afraid to raise their demands. So how will this new generation potentially tackle the problems and challenges previous generations have so far failed to address? What are the obstacles in front of them?

So tell me what you want me to ask these dynamic young people and I'll make sure to pose it to them. Just Tweet me @BeckyCNN using #CTWLiveFrom.
