Ted Mitchell - I'd take a look at the Myth of the Teenage Brain. A lot of the research is incredibly overhyped and overblown (tiny sample sizes, studies not proving what TIME or the like says they do). Other parts of brain development continue till one's 40s - it's a continuum, not a defined cutoff of maturity.

That said, I find little value in talking about "This generation's gonna be the change we need" and more value in what you're talking about - those of different ages changing things. Sure, younger folk to say they'll stand up... but also those in authority and power to be willing to make drastic changes at the expense of their own careers, perhaps.
