TODAY goes LIVE: Is the generational gap real?
This webinar is in partnership with the National Youth Council.
Join our host Elizabeth Neo and her guests on June 1 at 12pm on our Instagram live session as they talk about the generational gap and the perceived differences between the younger and older generations. There are also prizes to be won, so follow us on Instagram.
From attitudes on LGBT issues, marriage and parenthood to environmental conservation and individualism vs collectivism, the perceived differences between the younger and older generations are well documented.
Around the world, it has also been said that younger people want a bigger say in how things are run, be it in companies or governments which are correspondingly devoting much resources to engaging and involving youths in decision-making.
Scratch beneath the surface, though, and one may realise that what the younger generations are looking for is not much different from their older counterparts. How can we connect the different generations and bring out the best in each other, while recognising that the outlook of each generation is distinctly shaped by their own experiences?
