  • Are Young People Apathetic to the Political Process?

    We have seen a change in Government in the recent past, with the highlight being that a lot of activism and lobbying was done through social media. The real question is though, are young people truly actively involved?

  • Geography Matters.

    In an age of innovation, we should work towards a state where geography ceases to influence development. Geography Matters.

  • Is Pluralism a Myth?

    So, is pluralism a myth? The next time you post something on social media or present something in a forum, think twice. Make way for discussion, not aggression. Take time to care. That, is the path to reconciliation.

  • 2030 Agenda and Youth: from Rhetoric to Action

    The 2-day forum at the UN headquarters was a wakeup call that young people are not just the beneficiaries of the SDGs but also the key players.

  • “Creativating” Sri Lanka

    At the end of the day, it won’t be the fancy speeches, the online or one-off campaigns held island-wide by politically motivated individuals or groups that will help propel Sri Lanka’s development sustainably and innovatively, because without action, nothing will change.

  • Who am I? Does it Really Matter?

    The theory behind who you identify yourself as and how it affects your place in society is known as Identity Economics. This article will explore the youth unemployment crisis in Sri Lanka through the eyes of this theory, which is three-fold; Gender, Region and Caste.
