The 18 days of protests in Egypt at the beginning of the year led to the fall of Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year-old regime. Although thousands of people spent days and nights protesting at Tahrir Square in Cairo, the uprising became known as ‘The Youth Revolution’ because of the prominent role of young activists.

In the most recent addition to the 'Beyond School Books' podcast series, UNICEF Radio moderator Amy Costello discusses how education is empowering youth to participate in civil society with Asmaa Elbadawy, a young researcher for the Population Council’s office in Egypt; and Mohammed Naseehu Ali, a writer, musician and teacher from Ghana whose fiction and essays have been published in The New Yorker and the New York Times.
