It works as a ready reckoner for parents, teachers, corporates adolescent counsellors and anybody and everybody who wants to understand the challenges and opportunities of Gen Z in today’s digital age.
Announcing the release date (15 January 2020), author Debashish Sengupta said, “Zeners or Generation Z, currently the pre-teens and adolescents are the largest generational cohort in the world. Together with millennials, they make nearly two-thirds of the world’s population. And like millennials, Zeners and their life issues are grossly misunderstood by the older generation. A generation of world-changers like Greta Thunderberg or Wolf Cukier a 17-year old who discovered a planet on his third day of internship at NASA, they live in a world and times that make them equally vulnerable”. He further added, “The catch-phrase ‘Ok Boomer’ is a voice of their growing frustration and anxieties”.
About the Book
A Swedish teenager, Greta Thunderberg, has become the poster girl for the Climate Change and Sustainability movement across the world. All of 16 years, she has been nominated for the Nobel prize and has been on the cover of Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Greta personifies and symbolizes zeners, who are nothing like any previous generation the world has ever seen. These pre-teens & teens are unique, world changers and perhaps the only hope for this planet. Yet, if not nurtured, they are at the risk of being lost due to the ignorance of institutions and individuals.
The Life of Z packs extensive real-life narratives and thought-provoking analysis to help us understand this generation born 2000 and after to engage with them for a better future for them and for all of us.
