    As an e-PAR study, youth participants were encouraged to take the reigns as researchers through the online TakingITMobile Working Group, which comprised of 39 youth representing 20 different countries. A mixed-methods survey on mobile youth activism was collaboratively developed and deployed online in 10 languages.

    “Globally, 80% of young people have visited sites like YouTube to watch online video clips.”
    “The mobile phone is ingrained into young people’s everyday lives with 42% claiming it’s the first thing they look at in the morning and they last thing they do at night.”
