Today, young people are active bloggers as well as vocal protesters. They are #occupyingwallstreet and battling inequality. The past ten years have set the scene for change: the first African American President was elected in the US, gay marriage has been legalized in six states, democracies are forming as countries around the world are liberating. All of these events have been fundamentally youth-driven.
The members of Co-Cycle are propelling a nation towards sustainability and co-operation. Instead of standing on the picket lines, Co-Cyle is focused on research, mobilization, education, and organization all in the spirit of cooperation. What they are setting out to achieve is, simply, remarkable.
The youth gets together his materials to build a bridge to the moon, or, perchance, a palace or temple on the earth, and, at length, the middle-aged man concludes to build a woodshed with them.
- Henry David Thoreau
