For the November 8 issue of Time Out, we handed over the reigns to 13 London teenagers and let them document their own lives and issues. Our panel of teens aren't all wannabe journalists – there's an activist, a student, a DJ, two members of a grime crew and a poet – but they all have something to say. As a generation, they are seriously impressive. They're not the teetotal narcissists they're often made out to be; they're angry, articulate, political and entrepreneurial, using social media as a platform for free expression and as window on social injustice. Listen and learn!
