With an estimated 2.5 billion millennials worldwide, the footprint of the first global generation is taking shape. But, what is the face of a post-millennial nation, characterized by a maturing millennial generation ripe with digital nativity? What are the problems, prospects, and implications of an aging Baby-Boomer cohort, a volatile economic landscape, new-age foreign threats, progressive social movements, and a global network that makes country borders all but obsolete? More, how can we best prepare for and solve post-millennial challenges using the array of modern technology and big data at our disposal?
We discussed these questions, and more, with our panelists: Jon Stanton, Jon Schwabish, and Sarah Kliff. Pictures from the event can be found below.
We celebrated the digital debut of the annual Spring Edition on Friday April 29th, and further explored this year's theme Post-Millennial. Our launch event featured a panel and Q&A to tackle our topic, pairing experts on post-millennial policy topics with those on big data and media, to explore how we can best use technology and data science to tell stories and solve policy problems in unprecedented ways.
A cocktail reception, with wine, beer, and hors d'oeuvres, will follow our featured panel, Q&A, and staff presentation.
