There’s a showdown happening on the World Wide Web—this time between Millennials and older demographics. If you trust Google autofill, Millennials are lazy, stupid, doomed, entitled, and “the worst”. For the most varied demographic in the world, this cohort is defined by a singular experience, without a real understanding of the diversity embedded within the average Millennial life.
On Wednesday November 20th, the Association of Professional Futurists (APF) will host a digital campfire on Millennials by Millennials. The APF will livestream ten minute experience jolts from across the globe. All are welcome to tune in. We’re creating a space to listen, learn and laugh together.
If you’re a Millennial interested in sharing a perspective, please feel free to submit a speaking proposal. We’re curating sessions that promise to be:
- Curious. How are you or your friends interfacing with the world? Share a personal experience. Make a crazy connection. We invite you to go beyond the blogosphere and add another dimension to the typical Milleni-speak.
- Insight-driven. What might your personal observation or experience mean for the long-term future? We’re not looking for “right”. We want to put interesting perspectives into the universe for dialogue.
- Brief. Each session will focus on an insight that’s shareable in ten minutes- think coffee house chatter, not a PhD dissertation.
- Fresh. Generic PowerPoint templates are forbidden. Boring won’t fly. This isn’t corporate America and we’re craving uncommon delivery methods. Freak what you feel.
Email your proposal (session name + description + personal bio) to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 21st. Follow #MbyM for more information.
