WICT Europe: Beyond 2020: Global Youth – Voices & Perspectives

October 14, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CEST

WICT Europe is delighted to share the latest in CTAM’s series of industry webinars. This week, Christian Kurz, Senior Vice President of Global Consumer Insights at ViacomCBS shares the results of an in-depth study on youth perspectives on the future.

From the Covid-19 crisis to protests against racism and social injustice worldwide, global events of 2020 have undoubtedly brought a huge amount of disruption and uncertainty to all of us.

As we adapt to the period of rapid adjustment and wait for a “new normal” to emerge, the future – including our lifestyles and livelihoods – remains uncertain. With this uncertainty and disruption in mind, “Beyond 2020: Global Youth – Voices and Future” a new global study from ViacomCBS, explores youth perspectives on the future, looking into the lasting impacts of recent events on their attitudes, expectations and future plans. This webinar will explore the hopes, expectations and priorities of 16-24 year olds from 15 countries around the world, specifically regarding social issues, mental health, politics, travel and relationships and give insight on what this means for our industry moving forward.
