Being one of the Millennials or Generation Y, I have the feeling that it is time to dedicate some space at the FG Magazine to the future generation, the so called Generation Z or as some may call them: the digital natives. To add truth to the name these youngsters are highly connected, having mastered messaging, text messaging, mobile phones, computers, programming…the list could go on and on, not to mention that they are the most globalised and open-minded generation so far.
In this great diversity of talented youth and creative minds, we have decided to bring you a unique selection of stories, projects, and initiatives for youngsters or run by youngsters. Their impressive work will blow your mind and make you realise how far behind we, the Millennials, are compared to the prodigies that are already leaving a real legacy in this ever changing world.
