A generation we tend to think we know a lot about, but do we?
Let’s get informed.
mɪˈlɛnɪəl/ (noun) Our working definition for the purposes of this learning will be:
“Anyone born between 1981 and 1996 (ages 22-37 in 2018) as per http://pewrsr.ch/2CQR87r
& a person reaching young adulthood in the early 21st century, heavily affected by the economic downturn of 2007-2008
So, if you were thinking your teenager was a “millennial” – whoops! That’s not quite right. They’re likely a Generation X’er!
