The Millennials Project

Date: 
Sunday, December 31, 2017 (All day)

The Millennials Project will be an ongoing effort to explore the world through the eyes of the latest generation to come of age: the millennials. If you are under 30, we want to hear your thoughts. We want to know what’s inspiring you, what’s troubling you, and what you’re going to do about it.

The Millennials Project seeks to address the challenges that face our generation, and to explore the ideas, styles, movements and philosophies that animate us. The first step will be a series of online articles on the Millennials Project blog, but, over time, the project will combine digital media, print publication and live events in order to bring this conversation to life.

We look forward to being surprised by your pitches and submissions, but, to kick usoff, here are some things we’ve been thinking about.

  • Unpaid internships
  • Social media influencers
  • The exposure economy
  • Disposable living
  • Underemployment
  • Overeducation
