Generation Change

UK: Structures of power and systems of exclusion

Community activist Temi Mwale and political activist Athian Akec are on a mission to end youth violence in the United Kingdom.

In this episode of Generation Change, London-based journalist Iman Amrani meets two activists who are confronting the root causes of youth violence in the United Kingdom.

At the age of 15, Athian Akec became a youth MP and put knife crime at the top of his political agenda.

Temi Mwale founded the 4Front Project, an organisation that helps young people who have been affected by violence.

Athian and Temi talk about the structural, political and social issues that are excluding many young people and can lead to violence.
