Generation “Z”, who are they and what do they want? ” Nearly nine-in-10 (87%) of Gen Zers are worried for the environment and the planet, according to the 2019 Porter Novelli/Cone Gen Z Purpose Study. The study, surveying Americans ages 14-22, examines this emerging generation’s expectations of and attitudes toward company involvement in social and environmental issues – and the actions they are willing to take to positively impact topics they care about.” Talking to us about the Zers my phone guest is Rosanna Uribe (Following ten years in Panama´s commercial television as producer and host of five consecutive permanent shows, Rossana, in association with other social communication professionals, established the firm Rossana Uribe & Associates, later joining the Porter Novelli agencies International network).
