Generation Z or Centennials is emerging as the most disruptive generation, according to Andina News Agency, because they were born in the age of the Internet, which gives them a different view of the world.
Also considered as the “children of the Internet” or “digital natives”, they have particular characteristics in the social, labor and communication areas, said the news agency in an article, adding that those considered Centennials were born after 1997.
AIESEC, the largest student association in the world recognized by the United Nations Organization (UN) present in more than 1,700 universities, from its office in Peru, provided four characteristics of the Centennials in Peru:
1.- Money is not everything: unlike past generations, Centennials do not directly relate money to success. They often associate success with reputation and in doing things that one is passionate about.
2.- They are global: from their birth, they were exposed to technology and that is why they have a broader and more diverse vision of things.
3.- Committed to the environment: this generation feels committed to good causes. Caring for the environment is a topic of great interest to them.
4.- Innovative vision: Centennials will develop innovative systems that will change the patterns known to others that are totally disruptive and innovative, thanks to their quest to generate business models and pursue careers that have a social and economic component.
