Taking the Pulse of Youth Culture

This week on COOL: clap, dance and get drumming, all in the name of HIV/AIDS awareness, hear the amazing sounds of a multicultural group and meet a teen math wizz!

 

Start Dancing, Stop AIDS. Dance For Life!

With more than 33 million people living with HIV or AIDS and people under 25 years old accounting for half of all new infections, raising awareness amongst youth people is really important. One way of trying to do that that is “Dance4Life”: one night, 19 different countries and 50 thousand young people making a worldwide statement against HIV and AIDS. Connected live via satellite, young people around the world danced together -- they danced for life. These young people want to inspire companies, politicians, artists and the media keep to their word and commit to the 6th Millennium Development Goal, of pushing back the global spread of HIV and AIDS. (Report: Catherine Graue)

 

Multicultural Band Makes Sounds Out of Anything

You may have tried to make music out of everyday items, like garbage bins or old pipes. But imagine getting paid to do just that and tour the world! Mayumana is an Israeli performance group that items like clocks, pipes, fins for diving, bikes and the human body to create dance and music. Their home-theatre is in Tel-Aviv, Israel, but people from all over the globe now make up the group. They've been spreading their energy on stages all around the world and right now, the Spanish audience is falling in love with their new show, “Momentum”. (Report: Naama Shochat)

 

17 Year Old Maths Wizz Juggles School and Uni

Trying to juggle going to school and having time for hobbies, friends and family can be tough. But try doing all that -- and attend university lectures at the same time! That's exactly what one 17 year old German girl living in Bonn is doing. Unlike most German students, who first graduate from high school, and then go to university, Lisa Hartung is doing both at once! That's because some German universities, like Bonn University, want to encourage extremely talented high school students to attend university while they’re still at school. COOL caught up with Lisa to find out how she manages to lead this double life! (Report: Andrea Roensberg)
