[ASK-Y] Session 5: Why Do Youths and the Older Generation Not Get Along? Young People vs. Global Mistrust and Conflict
Asia Society Korea held the final session of the 2022 Asia Society Korea Youth (ASK-Y), marking the end of another fruitful initiative. In the final session, the panelists discussed a range of topics that stem from the generation gap.
The final topic of this year's ASK-Y, Why Do Youths and the Old Generation Not Get Along? Young People vs. Global Mistrust and Conflict dealt with the divisions between the ideas and behaviors of people from two different generations and how these distinctions generate a growing resentment in the views of youth towards the governing generation's alleged inability to address various global issues. Claudine Ukubereyimfura, winner of the previous 2021 ASK-Y program and student at the Yenching Academy of Peking University pursuing an MA in China Studies (Politics and International Relations), participated as a mentor for the session. MD Sazzad Hossain, who obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the Jeonbuk National University, and Valeria Quispe Tello, who is pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Management Engineering & Mechanical Engineering at the Korea University, moderated the session.
