2014 WOMADelaide Planet Talks - Gen Z and Distractions vs. Action

December 8, 2014

Speakers: Tim Hollo | Simon Sheikh | Ane Brun

Hosted by: Bernie Hobbs

Generation Z are the most globally exposed and connected generation in the history of the planet. They will inherit any mess made by their parents and grandparents but are they more concerned about celebrity culture and low carb diets than climate change and low carbon economies?  With the oldest Generation Z turning 19 this year how do we activate their hearts and minds to consider climate change action as their priority?  This panel looks at musicians, role models and ways to harness the power and influence of the most digitally engaged and globally connected generation we’ve ever seen.
