The project will next be working in UK, USA and Ukraine, aiming to help the next generation of activists and change-makers.

Generation Z: Their Voices

Praise for Generation Z: Their Voices, Their Lives:

“Thrillingly candid interviews with ‘Generation Z’ display all their fixations, their humour, and the frightening power of technology in their pockets.”

Newsweek

Praise for Generation Z: Their Voices, Their Lives:

“An important and deeply revealing book showcasing what it is really like to be a teenager in the twenty-first century.”

Boris Johnson

Praise for Generation Z: Their Voices, Their Lives:

“The book gives educators much to consider . . . The greatest value of GENERATION Z is a reminder of all that we love about our students – their humanity, their kindness, their moments of strength, their insights. It’s easy to see the echoes of students in our own classrooms; beyond the disrupters, preeners and attention-seekers, there are human beings going through tremendous changes. I found it a refreshing, confronting and heartfelt reminder of why I came into the classroom.”

Times Educational Supplement
