International Youth Day: Peace can be achieved through AI and education, say youth in Telenor Group survey

12/08/2017

Artificial intelligence and inclusive education systems should be seen as important tools in furthering the cause of peace, youth in Asia tell Telenor

Nearly 7,000 millennials, ages 15-30, have been surveyed across seven countries in Asia, including Thailand, Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Malaysia, Pakistan and Singapore

Its International Youth Day, and organizations around the world are celebrating young peoples contributions to conflict prevention and transformation, as well as inclusion, social justice and sustainable peace. Telenor Group recently reached out to Asian youth on these topics, and the majority say that they view artificial intelligence and access to education as crucial for building peace and improving their communities.

The findings were taken from two social media-driven surveys of Asian youth, assessing their attitudes toward peace-building, harnessing technology for social good and securing the jobs of the tomorrow. Together, Telenor Group surveyed nearly 7,000 millennials, ages 15-30, in seven markets in Asia. The two Telenor online surveys were conducted in May of 2017 and September-October 2016.

Artificial intelligence: Best peace-building technology When asked which technology has the largest potential to give rise to peace, 32 percent of the respondents placed their bets on artificial intelligence, followed by the Internet of Things (30 percent), and virtual reality (28 percent). Across all markets, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and virtual reality ranked consistently in the top three, suggesting that millennials see vast potential in these future technologies.

Youth to leaders: More education, more inclusion Among social causes that can lead to peace, including environmental protection, unemployment mitigation, education inclusion and civil rights, Asian youth responded that they are most passionate about education. Thirty-seven percent of survey takers ranked this as their top cause. Forty-seven percent of them say that leaders should invest more in developing inclusive education systems that give equal access and opportunities to all. Youth respondents second-ranked cause was climate change and global warming (21 percent). Other global issues prioritized by Asias millennials include mental health (17 percent), youth unemployment (17 percent), and gender inequality (8 percent).

Innovative, entrepreneurial spirits One thing that united all markets surveyed was the youths own perspectives of their place in the world. Uniformly in all surveyed markets, nearly 40 percent of the youth described themselves as the most innovative and entrepreneurial generation in history.

Assessing tomorrows jobs In a second Telenor survey, youth in Singapore, Malaysia, India, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Pakistan were polled on their attitudes about their future career, technologys impact and the skills they need to be best prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. The results indicate that while Asias young adults embrace the importance of technology, non-technical human skills still play an important role.

The highest numbers of Pakistani, Indian and Bangladeshi youth maintained that the most important skills to obtaining a great job in the future will be the ability to inspire others, and leadership capability (37-, 36-, 34 percent respectively). More than one of four surveyed Singaporean youth cited people management and emotional intelligence (27%) as needed skills. Nearly one in three Myanmar youth said that creativity, cognitive flexibility (29%) are critical. The standout in this category was Malaysia, where 24% of the surveyed youth stated that tech-related mobile and web development, and super coding skills, were most important.

Todays youth were born into a connected world, and we want to know more about the roles that they believe technology can play, both in their own lives and in bettering the world around them. Connectivity and digital services play a fundamental role in making life better, and its inspiring to learn that Asias youth are with us in this mission, said Ola Jo Tandre, Head of Social Responsibility, Telenor Group, This is why we work with them every year through our Telenor Youth Forum, where we have them innovating new solutions to some of the many challenges facing their generation.

Telenor Youth Forum in final stages of recruitment for 2017 program Initiatives such as the Telenor Youth Forum provide a global stage for youth to brainstorm and create innovative concepts that can drive real change in the world. Recruitment for the Telenor Youth Forum 2017 is nearly closed in many Telenor markets. Youth between 20-28 years of age in markets where Telenor is present are strongly encouraged to apply find out if applications in your markets are still open here: www.telenor.com/youthforum

Designed as a year-long program in partnership with the Nobel Peace Centre, the Telenor Youth Forum challenges its delegates with solving major socioeconomic crises facing youth. They are put in teams and paired with mentors from organizations such as UNICEF, Interbridge, the Red Cross, Techfugees and Telenor Research. Delegates learn skills such as service/product design and prototyping, in addition to insights on issues that can only be gained through hands-on experience.
