To Create Regional Change Think Young

Neal Peirce says that youth can help in the search for regional solutions.

"If the adults are hopeless deadlocked and/or disengaged, let the kids, the future, have a crack at seeking out solutions...the new century may be a ripe time to get young people -- coming on with fresh attitudes, less patience with old ways, fewer ingrained prejudices -- involved in regional truth-telling and the search for solutions."
