    Abstract

    Young people are often described as disengaged and immature, and having a false sense of entitlement. Polls have suggested that many of them are questioning the value of democracy. But the reality is much more complex and hopeful. The rise of social entrepreneurs suggest a vibrant current flowing beneath much of the malaise pervading contemporary government and public life in Australia. Through innovative forms of action and technology, young people are actively seeking to address some of the key problems facing Australia and the world. We should rethink common stereotypical views of young people, and in particular their role in public life and in shaping Australia.
