Which kids can thrive in today’s world?
Youth can thrive, but it can be tough to navigate a world where social media and digital media are both changing the way we do business.
A new book, Youth in the 21st Century, takes a look at how the kids of today are adapting to the changes.
In the book, “We Will Not Survive,” the authors argue that the kids are coming of age during an era of rapid innovation and the emergence of new forms of commerce.
The authors also say that they have a new generation of experts who are helping to prepare kids for these new times.
They include leaders from companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Uber, as well as scholars, entrepreneurs, and media professionals.
They also include leaders like author and tech analyst Peter Thiel, who said in a recent interview that he is a big fan of the book.
“I really believe that the book is an opportunity for us to engage with these kids and the kids in the book,” Thiel told NBC News.
“It is a really valuable resource for young people, and I think it will help us to build a generation that has a better understanding of the challenges that they’re going to face in the coming years.”
