Cassandra’s latest report, all about Gen Alpha, is here
Today, we’re releasing our Gen Alpha report that seeks to understand the generation born after 2010. Cassandra looks at Gen Alpha as Generation Infinite – with infinite challenges and possibilities. They've been handed a lot, from the climate crisis to the impact of social media. They've also been handed what they themselves see as the answer to a lot of these challenges: unmatched technological access and ability from a very young age. Add that to their remarkable creativity and innate curiosity, you've got a generation unlike any we've ever seen. Here, we’re giving readers a sneak peek of the report, which you can find in full here.
