During the Adobe Youth Voices program at CDC, youth artists became motivated to take action using digital media.
Using their newly acquired software skills, participants created posters, short videos, and brochures to express youth concerns about community issues. Through E-first, young people harness 21st century skills to voice their opinions and move towards shaping a better world. “Young generation if they are aware and sensitized they could solve the problem. Every small step could save our earth.”
