Young Mongols

Change in Mongolia has long been led by its young people. In 1989, a youth-led revolution threw off the Soviet yoke, ushering in multi-party democracy. Thirty years later, Mongolia's youth are still leading their country's democratic development. Thirty-seven percent of Mongolia's population is under 35 years old, and this generation is full of inspiring leaders with clear ideas of how they want to change and grow their country. This book will provide an overview of several aspects of modern Mongolian life - feminism, the LGBTQ community, the media, urban planning and pollution, mining, and entrepreneurship - as told through the stories of the young activists working in these areas. Many of these young Mongols have turned down lucrative careers abroad to return to their home country. They believe they can use their training abroad to make Mongolia a place they are proud to call their homeland.
