Us older generations (i.e. post 35) have spent alot of time over the last decade lamenting the decline of 'news duty' amongst the youngbut
This lament has slowly died down as we older generations ourselves have become less and less prone to plough dutifully through a daily paper and then sit patiently through a couple of evening news bulletins
He claims that the younger generation have taken a new step,active participation and points towards a site called Avaaz
Avaaz is not a news outlet in the sense most of us would understand one. It doesn't have breaking news stories. It ignores lots of world events most of us would see as significant. It has no big name columnists voicing their opinions.
Instead, it motivates. It stimulates. It galvanises people to take action.
It is an interesting development and will hopefully encourage young people to participate more in matters that should concern them a lot more
