9780982093108: Generation We: How Millennial Youth are Taking Over America And Changing Our World Forever

In the last three years, the Millennial Generation has emerged as a powerful political and social force. Currently including young people up to30 years of age, the Millennials are the largest generation in history; they are independent politically, socially, and philosophically and they are spearheading a period of sweeping change in America and around the world. Generation We explores the emerging power of the Millennial Generation, shows how the Millennials (and their supporters from other generations) are poised to change our nation and our world for the better, and lays out a powerful plan for progressive change that today s youth is ready to implement. Generation We presents for the first time the results of a major research study into the characteristics of the Millennial Generation, including an in-depth survey of 2,000 individuals and a series of twelve geographically- and demographically-diverse focus groups, all sponsored by author Eric Greenberg and conducted by Gerstein | Agne Strategic Communications, one of the most respected research organizations in the United States. Generation We also presents the major political, social, and economic challenges facing the Millennial generation. As Greenberg and Weber show, the best way to launch the Millennial revolution is with Project FREE a massive scientific and industrial program to move America beyond fossil fuels by inventing the next generation of energy sources. Project FREE will require a significant national investment. But it will produce millions of new jobs, dramatically reduce the environmental damage caused by carbon emissions, and free the country from dependence on unreliable, sometimes hostile foreign regimes. Ultimately, it even has the potential to revolutionize life on this planet, giving us energy that is virtually costless and producing many other huge benefits, from plentiful fresh water to an end to wars over resources. Generation We also answers the question, What can I do to help turn this vision of a better America into reality? It offers a list of specific steps citizens of any age can take to help promote the progressive ideals and program outlined in the book. It s the book that can inspire a generation to achieve new heights of greatness, allowing Americans to take back control of our lives, our communities, our country, and our future.

Eric H. Greenberg is President and Chief Executive Officer of the Beautifull, INC, a prepared, fresh food company focused on providing tasty, healthy, and real food for retail and home delivery. Greenberg has founded and established many businesses in his entrepreneurial career including wind farms in partnership with Native American tribes in the Great Plains; Acumen Sciences and the Acumen Journal of Life Sciences; Scient, a consulting firm focused on eBusiness and emerging technology; and Viant, an internet systems integrator.

Karl Weber is a writer and editor specializing in topics from business, politics, and current affairs. Weber's recent projects include the New York Times bestseller Creating a World Without Poverty, co-authored with Muhammad Yunus, winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize (2008); The Triple Bottom Line, a guide to sustainable business co-authored with Andrew W.

Weber served as project editor on the number one New York Times bestseller What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception by Scott McClellan (June, 2008).

Review:

In my travels around the world, I have been very impressed by today's young people. They are smart, caring, creative, and generous. I share the hope expressed by Greenberg and Weber that this new generation will help re-orient our planet and conquer the problems of poverty, war, and pollution that currently plague it. -Muhammad Yunus, Founder of Grameen Bank and Co-Winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize

Energy, health care, national security, the environment--these are just some of the issues where Americans are hungry for solutions rather than slogans and posturing. I see hope in the fact that, as Greenberg and Weber detail in this important book, America's next generation will be prepared to help lead the search for real answers.-U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate

We live in amazing times--times of looming crisis as well as incredible opportunity. Tens of millions of young people around the world are eager for change and looking for ways to employ their unprecedented levels of knowledge, talent, and energy. Greenberg and Weber’s GENERATION WE offers a roadmap for the revolutionary movement the Millennials are ready to launch.-Larry Brilliant, Executive Director, Google.org

For too long, Americans have allowed themselves to be divided--liberal against conservative, rich against poor, race against race--while the challenges we face have gone unmet. It's time for a new politics based on innovation and a shared commitment to the greater good, and Greenberg and Weber explain how American youth are ready to help make it happen.-Tom Daschle, Former Majority Leader of the United States Senate

In a political world poisoned by cynicism and spin, the idealism, optimism, commitment, and energy of the Millennial generation offer an inspiring antidote. With their independent thinking and their readiness to abandon the partisan wars we've been fighting for too long, today's young people are poised to lead a worldwide revolution. Generation We captures this transformational moment with insight and clarity.-Arianna Huffington, founder, The Huffington Post
