  7. 7. Research Uncovers Universal Motivation “We’ve seen the emergence of a generation with fundamental commonalities that transcend borders. The same 3 motivations are ranked highly in every country:” “Technology……is the great global unifier; it is the glue that binds this generation together and fuels the three motivations…” JUSTICE The need for social or personal justice, to do what’s right, to be an activist AUTHENTICITY The need to see things as they are COMMUNE The need for connection, relationships & community The Truth about Youth | McCann Worldgroup | May 2011
  8. 8. Generation C- Global Views 1. Technology as a 5th Sense -intrinsic & fundamental 2. The Social Economy -definition of self based on social connections 3. The Truth Hunters - seeking substance & authenticity 4. Justice Re-Imagined - quest to do right thing
  9. 9. Technology- Embraced  “Youth see technology as Plah-Doh – something they use in an utterly malleable and instinctive way. Older generations start with ‘what will this box allow me to do?’ Whereas this generation starts with ‘what do I want to do? Where can my imagination take me?’  Technology enables young people to sense the world and make sense of the world. It is this deep relationship with technology that is shaping their attitudes towards community and truth and allowing them to re-imagine justice for a new era.” The Truth about Youth | McCann Worldgroup | May 2011 How will this redefine “confidentiality”?
