S2 EP6: Modern Day Activism
Season 2 Episode 6: Modern Day ActivismSnowflakes, narcissists, spoiled, entitled. These are all descriptions that persist in the media to describe the millennial generation, but we’re also the first generation to realise the power of digital media in order to educate, inspire and challenge the status quo.
With that in mind, we really wanted to talk about modern day activism and the way in which our own perceptions have changed, as well as some of the truly inspiring millennial voices that we think you should know about.
