RE is an exceptional prefix. When bound to a word, it usually indicates that something will be refreshed, that something will be made anew, recreated, recycled or even regenerated. The current generation has focused on creating what has been created, developing what has been developed and the list of our repetitive actions would go on and on. Perhaps it is high time we further define what our generation is capable of offering to the world.

By revisiting the previous generation’s ideas and recreating what has never been realized before, re-synthesizing old answers to solve modern riddles we face in our day to day lives, these are just a few arduous steps in redefining our generation. What can you do?
