Gen Z: Exile on Mainstream?

This event is now sold out - please contact to be added to the waiting list. YouthSight, the youth and Gen Z specialists, will be sharing the issues that matter most to young people today.

Gen Z: Exile on Mainstream?

Does mainstream culture matter to this audience? Do trends even matter? What does Gen Z want from the world at large? Are they traditionalist or nonconformist?

We delve into these questions and more, based on the findings of a wide scale survey of 16-23 year olds – and give you the opportunity to quiz the generation of the moment on what makes them connect with a brand.

This event is free for members and £25 for non-members.
