In recent years, global leadership has been characterised by ‘post-truth’ politics, where facts and evidence-based arguments are less influential than appeals to emotion and personal belief. The notion of integrity in leadership is, however, an important constant which can bridge the gap between evidence and emotion. Youth leadership is a modern phenomenon that has arisen from the perception that mainstream leadership and status quo politics do not pay sufficient regard to young voices and often do not act in the interests of youth. Detractors argue that young voices lack understanding and maturity and are overly influenced by their significant adults. This forum will hear from four youth leaders who represent a diversity of approaches to a range of issues. It will explore the importance of integrity in leadership and the capacity of youth leadership to influence wider social debates and outcomes.
