2011 has been a “Year of Change” in the Arab world. On the heels of massive youth mobilization in the region—leading to radical shifts in political consciousness and the collapse of regimes— Youth for Change is reaching out to its young members in the Arab region and around the world to discuss the ins and outs of people power in a virtual live chat, Let's Talk Revolution on May 28th at 4:00pm GMT on YFC chat room

This chat will give young leaders the opportunity to speak with some of the youth activists involved in the recent Arab revolutions, directly and indirectly, creating a forum for young people throughout the world to share their ideas on how to collaborate toward change, and the challenges they might face along the way.

The Live chat is part of "Youth for Change" program implemented by TakingITGlobal and the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and other organizations in the MENA region.

The ongoing success of Youth for Change demonstrates that, with the right support, Arab youth can be inspiring agents of change in their communities. Empowering these young leaders to bring their voices to a global audience, this live chat will create a space for cross-cultural dialogue, exchange, and collaboration.

Share your views with us on this important topic and join our special guest panelists and members from the Middle East and North African region and from all over the world to share your perspectives and thoughts.

Live Chat Main Theme:
2011 revolutions have been referred to as 2.0 Revolutions due to people’s great usage of social media channels and usage of its applications, especially when it comes to sociopolitical critique and media coverage. Even after people won some of their rights; social media still reigns supreme as the number one means of communication among youth. Officials now realize the need to communicate with youth, and Social Media is a major means of doing this. The Egyptian Ministry of Defense and the Egyptian Cabinet have now established pages on Facebook to better communicate with Egyptian youth. Activists have gone an extra mile with Social Media, even after the revolutions, by creating pages and starting campaigns online calling for positive change and rebuilding their countries.

Do you think that the means of communication currently available for youth are enough to complement their steps? Or do you think that communication obstacles still exist? Do you think that some governments are still alienating themselves from their peoples? What are the possible alternatives both youth and governments can come up with to bridge this gap?

Do you have a story to share with us regarding your own experiences with social media or change? Do you have any ideas about how people can better communicate with their leaders? In your opinion, how can young people keep up what they have achieved? How can youth participate in ensuring democracy in this transitional phase?
