LOPEZ GARCIA, Manuel E. Emerging practices and youth phenomenon as away of social transformation in Colombia. Ultima décad. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.35, pp.33-59. ISSN 0718-2236.

Increasingly, over the past 50 years, young people participate individually and collectively, not only in building the social context and its offerings but in the generation of alternative practices and similarities thereby posing a proactive role in the cultural transformation, as new generations carry the sensitivity and willingness to appropriate, embody and create, allowing practices and discussing emerging phenomena in contemporary youth. Understanding that this does not imply a complete break in traditional habits and offers, but an increase -a constant explosion of actions  and feelings. This article provides thought on practices of the emerging youth phenomena about redefinition and social transformations that may be evident from these, putting emphasis on cultural practices, technology, the body and the subjective experience as the most significant elements in the dynamics of current youth.

Keywords : youth; youth practices; youth events.
