They’re obsessed with fashion, sex and reality TV. They’re Facebook-savvy, but functionally illiterate. They’re self-involved, shallow and utterly indifferent to anyone but themselves.
If that’s what you think you know about teenagers, then you really don’t know anything about them at all.
@issue 4 teens, a current affairs series from the team behind ichannel’s @issue, takes a revealing look at what Canadian teenagers are really thinking and talking about today.
Hosted by award-winning journalist Kevin O’Keefe, the hour-long show profiles teenage activists, entrepreneurs and philanthropists, and explores young people’s perspectives on hot-button issues from bullying to climate change and terrorism.
“Today’s teens are better informed, more aware and more engaged than perhaps any previous generation in history. They are passionately concerned about the world they will inherit, and powerfully determined to shape it for the better.” – Rosemary Fusca, Head of Programming, ichannel
