Back to Their Future! Working together to get Generation Z back on track.
“Your future hasn’t been written yet, no one’s has. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one!”
Never before, in peacetime, has a generation so comprehensively had its hopes, dreams, and aspirations put on hold for so long, on behalf of so many. Yet this is what has happened to Generation Z – those born between 1997 and 2012. As the world has battled Covid, their studies, plans and ambitions have been derailed, causing many of them to feel lonely, isolated, and, worst of all, without hope.
But as the vaccine rollout begins – itself, one of humanity’s greatest achievements – and a new academic year beckons, now is the time for those in higher education and graduate recruitment to get Gen. Z back on track. Now is the time to re-engage, re-enthuse, and re-inspire our young people.
Most of all, we have to convince them that this is their time: that the future is there for their making, that more than ever, everything is possible.
It’s time to go back to their futures.
