Millennials often get a bad rap, but people under 30 have already changed society in profound and positive ways. Just think of digital behemoths like Facebook and Instagram that have radically shifted the way we connect with one another — both were created by people in their 20s. But Mark Zuckerberg and Kevin Systrom are passing the torch to others, and we at TIME are thinking about the next generation of artists, innovators and pioneers. Who are the people who will change the way we live, eat, dress, communicate and even think now and in the next few years?
We’re giving you the floor and the chance to tell us who you think are tomorrow’s agents of change. Nominate millennial movers and shakers from all over the world who are changing the status quo. We’ll offer your suggestions to our expert panel of millennial thought leaders and publish the final list on TIME.com in the beginning of December.
There are a few ways to submit someone’s name. You can always leave a note in the comments, email firstname.lastname@example.org or just send @TIME a tweet using #TIME30. Don’t forget to tell us why that person should be on the list.
