Lima, Peru – What is it like to be on the cusp of adulthood in Latin America today? The first generation to grow up in a continent where the middle class outnumbers the poor, today’s young are on average better educated than their parents. They also have much higher aspirations—but will they be able to reach them? What hurdles stand in their way, and what can be done to overcome them?
Americas Quarterly has convened a panel of experts, young people, and entrepreneurs to discuss this generation’s opportunities, dreams, and the challenges that hold them back. The event is being held with the support of Citi Foundation.
This event will be broadcast in Spanish.
Mercedes Aráoz, Vice President of Peru
