Are the kids ok?

With Diana Filimon

We often hear statistics – some bad, some good – about how Gen Z is growing up. Their values, their habits, and their understanding of what is happening will shape the world. So what is Gen Z really like? Are they anarchists? Libertarians? Socialists? Do they care about the climate change? Will they be kinder or more cruel? Will they be able to face the world as it is now? Diana Filimon will share her thoughts after over 6 years of coordinating and implementing both online and offline projects focused entirely on our youngest generation. Spoiler alert: it's complicated.
