Generation Z: What do teenagers wish we knew?
We usually hear about teenagers from adults, not from the teenagers themselves. On Wednesday, March 31 at 18:30 (EET), SNF DIALOGUES, hosted an online discussion by teenagers and for teenagers.
Eleven teenagers ages 15 to 18 from major urban areas and remote villages in Greece, participants in a program by the nonprofit Tipping Point to connect high school and university students with mentors, took the microphone as panelists at the 41st DIALOGUES event, sharing what they think the rest of us ought to know about them. From the label of “digital natives,” to the education they are receiving, to questions of appropriate and responsible behavior during the pandemic and beyond, to the psychological impact of COVID-19, the teenage panelists talked about their lives and their concerns. They answered questions from peers and parents alike in a discussion that saw huge audience participation, garnering hundreds of questions and comments.
The SNF DIALOGUES discussions are held through journalism nonprofit iMEdD (the incubator for Media Education and Development) and curated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
