We honour the sacrifices made by the youth of 1976. The energy and urgency of youth is almost always the impetus that creates great change. Look at our changing world, see who is out there on the front lines, pushing for better – for different. Today, more than ever, young people are fighting their way out of the neatly labelled boxes the world wants to put them in. They don’t want to be talked at or sold to. They want the chance to be their authentic selves, to have their experiences reflected and valued in the world. To feel heard and understood.
