WHY FIGHTING FOR YOUTH
MELATI’S PROJECT ON PEER TO PEER EDUCATION
In BIGGER THAN US Melati warns us : « it is now enough to be inspired. We have to educate each other ». And she means it. Melati has built on everything she has learnt and experienced before and during the film to craft her new project : YOUTHTOPIA, a platform by the youth, for the youth, on activism. Classes, tools, opportunities to connect and to get active from young activists themselves. Learn it all from them. From our knowledge, they are no better teachers.

What helps you the most? Who or what do you turn to when it's too hard?
WHAT IS THE PRICE TO PAY?
What do we lose, what does it cost?
What do we find? Why do we "stick"?
ACTIVISM: A GIRL THING?
Why are there so many girls in these movements?
What could change everything?
THE INDIVIDUAL OR THE SYSTEM?
Should we change the system or change ourselves?
WHY TAKE ACTION?
Is activism a choice or an impetus?
How do you see your generation? And why?
