Scroll Down Arrow


Gen Z are stepping into adulthood carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Without the tools or role models to help them enact the change they want to see, they find themselves paralysed by paradox.

Our Generations: Now and Next 2024–2025 report takes an in-depth look at key generational demographics – Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, Gen Z and Alphas – and their evolving attitudes to technology, work, finance, education, sustainability, and health and wellness over the next 3–5 years.
