ISEAS - BRIN JOINT CONFERENCE
About the Webinar Conference
This Webinar Conference aims to provide a platform for interactive and intellectually stimulating dialogue and debate on the multi-faceted challenges impacting the millennial generation, as well as their potential to powerfully influence the future trajectory of Indonesia’s overall social, cultural, economic, and political development. Globally, the so-called millennial generation refers to those who were born between 1981 and 1996, also known as Generation Y. This generation, currently in their mid-20s to early-40s, represents the population cohort that is moving into the prime of their careers and lives and perhaps, is the most vocal and vociferous generation in public discourse. In Indonesia, this generation is slated to take their positions as leaders in various important spheres of society – from political, economic and business spheres to the education, arts, and culture sectors. Hence, understanding their concerns, roles in society and ideas on how to realize their aspirations will shed light on inter-generational leadership transition in Indonesia.
