What is the single most important question that the youth of this era need to ask themselves?
The same as adults. What is my purpose and how do I achieve it.You may or may not need formal education to pursue your purpose. It may change, evolve, become achieved and need to be replaced. Not everyone's purpose is to change the world. I make things better where I can. The small things around me that people aren't noticing. I seek them and serve to fulfill them. I know that I have impacted others who have gone on to impact others. The ripple effect may create more good than I can ever know. Every great achievement can be traced down to small ones. Each step along the way someone served a purpose. Many others may find what appears to be a grander purpose. Someone's purpose may be to teach them how to achieve it.

what might be the human needs after 300 years?
Childhood needs are simple to be fed, sheltered, taught. and to feel as though we matter. Many children on this planet have those needs and they aren't met. Current needs are basically the same , to eat, to have shelter and to feel as though I matter. The basics have been taught to me and learning is a choice. I doubt our race will survive 300 more years. We are not respecting this planet that we must rely on for our survival. The people who realize that, are outnumbered by those who don't. We strive to cure illnesses and replace joints and organs. If we are successful, what happens to the population? How does this planet that is being used and abused sustain that population. Will man be able to create enough unnatural resources for us to survive without the planet functioning? Where will this population go? There is the suggestion of us creating other places suitable to live. Can you see our current level of sophistication, especially socially, capable of coping with that. In general I believe our population is declining in intelligence, decency, values, etc. We are killing each other in large numbers, letting people die of starvation and simple needs not being met when we have the resources, but choose not to help each other. Then there is nuclear weapons and accidents. Or uncontrollable plagues.Look at how popular a show like "Jersey Shore" is. I am ashamed of our society. The next 300 years would have to see major changes in what has become our human nature, for this race to survive. I'm glad I won't be here.
