About Gen-Z

Developing competences and opportunities for social media entrepreneurship

Description

Generation Z, born after 1995, is starting to grow up, with the oldest members of the cohort now approaching 21 years old. Generation Z, is more likely to value independence and therefore is poised to become the most entrepreneurial generation ever. Nowadays, social media has become pervasive in empowering young Europeans in their educational, academic and professional life, and Gen Z is the first generation to innately understand the true power of social media. The Gen-Z project, aims to join efforts for empowering this generation to become social media entrepreneurs and at the same time developing their key competences and employability skills. A further by-product of this project will be to enable linkages, where Gen-Z beneficiaries will be able to support other businesses with their own capacity to use social media to improve their businesses.
