Theme: The Audacity of whY

This event occurred on

New York, New York
United States

Human evolution, invention, medicine, technology and relationships would have stood still without disruptors posing that simple, powerful question 'why?'.

There is no-one more curious, no greater disruptor, than a teen on a mission. They prod, poke and dissect their worlds around them until they are confronted with answers - or mysteries - that capture their imaginations. Nothing else will do.

It could be said that Generation Y is more like Generation 'Why?' as they turn over established regimes, age-old thinking, and timeless truths, through social media, the power of crowds and an unswerving belief that they have the right to know 'why?'

Meet the trailblazers leading a global 'whY' revolution and be prepared to have your perceptions turned upside down.
