Think is the community where you, your friends, and your favorite celebrities can get informed, get heard and take action on the issues that matter to you most. MTV has launched Think to give you – the activist generation – the opportunity to make your life, your community and your world better. The Think community provides the tools so you can do just that.
Below you'll find links to major research studies that have influenced our model, our mission and our overall approach to putting the power back in the hands of those who still have the energy and the vision to use it.
