Generation Z, also known as Zentennials, Post-Millennials, or iGeneration, are kids born in 2000 or later. Now in their teens or high school, the Gen Z population numbers some 2 billion globally. Gen Z make up roughly 30 percent of the population. Only two countries in the world has a big population of kids in our time, one being the Philippines.
This generation grew up with technology. These kids are digital natives who not only process information faster, but are also great multi-taskers. They can’t wait to get on with their lives, opting to join the workforce at an earlier age or take the entrepreneurial route to start their own ventures. Though they are global thinkers, they place a very high value on individuality. They want to make their mark on the world… now!
With their global perspective and digital savvy, the Zentennials have the potential to be one of the best, if not the greatest generation on the planet given the right opportunities to grow and nurture their talents, interests and skills.
To start the discussion this new generation, Our Awesome Planet (OAP), the country’s premiere lifestyle blog, and Mommy Mundo (MM), the country’s most active parenting resource and community, have teamed up for RaisingGenzZ:TheMakingoftheGreatest Filipino Generation scheduled for September 9, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Taguig.
The very first conference of its kind, Raising Gen Z
will gather the country’s top experts, advocates, and influencers from the digital, academe, business, and parenting spheres. More than gaining a deeper understanding of Generation Z, it hopes to provide those who are in the position to grow and guide Gen Z’ers with tools to properly hone their innate skills and inclinations.
With recent studies that show that while the Philippines is one of the top countries when it comes to social media consumption and sharing, the vision of Raising Gen Z
is to transform the Philippines into the social media capital of the world in terms of content production, bringing the Filipinos’ creativity and ingenuity into the global arena.
To achieve these goals and to start the conversation on how to maximize the potential of this new generation, following is the line-up of speakers and topics that will be discussed during this conference:

Why Should YOU Attend?
For Parents: If your child was born after the year 2000, he/she is already part of the generation we call GenZ, or what we call as ZENTENNIALS! They are the upcoming generation, different than any generation that came before, with talents and capabilities that are unique but this may be surprising, alien or even shocking to us parents.

You will not only understand what goes on through your child’s brain, but it will equip you with the necessary information and tools to parent them the proper way.
For Educators: Speaking the language of Gen Z can be foreign and sometimes difficult to understand. Many questions come to mind when Gen Z and technology are mentioned in a sentence. Sometimes we tend to think if the tools and strategies that schools equip themselves with are enough to keep up with the changing times.
